Located in the heart of downtown, The Forum opened its doors in 1993, paid for as an item in the 1988 SPLOST. It was constructed to seat 3116 for sports events, and up to 3,932 for concerts and entertainment events.
The management of the forum was assumed by the city of Rome on January 1, 2024, along with the surrounding property of Town Green and the Pedestrian Bridge.
Renamed the Forum River Center, the newly renovated venue touts comfortable accommodations for just about any event imaginable. From shows to expos, corporate celebrations, conventions, wedding receptions, bull riding or reunions, the Forum River Center does not disappoint patrons and guests and will continue to enhance Rome assets.
