The Garrison Arena -- A Source of Pride

Clemson University takes great pride in the Garrison Arena and in the partnerships fostered with animal industry. The Garrison Arena is the only public facility in South Carolina specifically devoted to serving the unique needs of horse and cattle events. The Garrison Arena hosted its first show in April, 1991 with attendance soon surpassing 100,000 visitors annually.

A weekly venue of livestock related events features world class animals from throughout the region. In providing opportunities for shows and exhibits to vast numbers of people, the arena boosts tourism and contributes to economic development not only in the upstate, but the entire state of South Carolina.

Name a Seat

Our goal is to provide comfortable seating for up to 2,700 guests. Your tax deductible gift of $200 per seat will purchase a seat; have it installed; provide ongoing upkeep, repair and replacement; and have a recognition plaque inscribed. This gift will also provide additional amenities such as restrooms and concessions. When you name a seat, your name or the name of a loved one, will be inscribed onto a recognition plaque on a seat-back in the main arena.

Simply print, complete and return the application form (88kb, PDF) so that the plaque will be inscribed appropriately.
