Google Maps


Ticketmaster.com is the official online ticket provider for events at the Iowa State Center. Tickets from other online sources may be illegitimate and/or more expensive.  Please be aware of secondary ticket sites that look like the Iowa State Center ticket office site.

Please go to either www.center.iastate.edu and click on Tickets or Buy Now links or to www.ticketmaster.com.  When purchasing tickets online, look closely at the url to insure that you are on the correct site.  Tickets purchased from sources other than Ticketmaster may be counterfeit and may not be accepted at the event.
