The NEW Indiana State Fair Coliseum is now open!

Here is a listing of the major renovations:

*The lobby is now larger, with five ticket windows, two 72-inch video screens and two elevators.

*The main concourse now offers natural light and open views into the arena.

*The arena itself has a new overhead LED scoreboard and a new 9-foot livestock wall around floor.

*Other additions include a new team store, sound system and concession stands, as well as 70 new flat screen monitors throughout.

*The $10 million Youth Arena that was added opened in August 2013 for skaters and hockey players to use during the winter months. The 30,000 square foot investment adjoins the Coliseum.

*The State Fair Commission said renovations were finished mindful of the site's historical significance. Twelve original ticket windows were refurbished. Crews restored 96 original wooden seats. The new lobby floor was made to match the original. Posters of historical events have been hung in the lobby.

*Up to 80 percent of the materials removed were recycled, including concrete that is now used in the fairground's parking lots.
