Harrah’s Event Center Plan

Harrahs’ Cherokee Casino & Hotel in North Carolina announced April 8 it will open its 3,000-capacity Events Center on Labor Day weekend.

The venue is exclusively booked by C3, and Lady Antebellum kicks off the new room Sept. 4.

The state-of-the-art facility features four VIP suites, box seating and more than 1,000 balcony seats and can be configured to accommodate conventions, concerts, sports and other events, according to a statement.

The events center is part of a $633 million expansion project under way at the facility owned by the Eastern Band of the Cherokee Nation.
