The arena is used primarily during the season of the Indiana State Fair while also hosting year-round sporting events. The venue was a major concert venue during the 50s and 60s until the opening of the Market Square Arena. The arena closed for renovation on October 29, 2012 to reopen in 2014 as the fairgrounds main concert venue.

It is scheduled to reopen in 2014. The multimillion dollar renovations will make the facility compliant with the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 and increase the seating to nearly 9,000.On October 31, 1963, during a Holiday on Ice show, a propane leak at a concession stand caused an explosion which killed 74 people.

On the 50th anniversary it was reported that the leak was slow and ignited by a nearby popcorn machine.
