The DCU Center in Worcester, MA

For over three decades, the DCU Center in Worcester, Massachusetts has been recognized as the gathering place for people to experience the finest in entertainment, sporting events and public functions.

On May 1, 2013, the DCU Center closed for the final phase of construction. Over a five month period, the DCU Center underwent a $23 Million Renovation and Expansion project, May 1 – October 1, 2013, and officially reopened with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony and Public Preview event on October 3, 2013. Elements of the new design include upgrades to both the interior and exterior of the facility and consist of a new façade, digital marquee, a landscaped promenade/entrance, redesigned box office pavilion, an expanded concourse, indoor/outdoor retail space, four luxury event suites and a new concourse-level bar/club area. The cumulative total for the multi-year capital improvement project is $31.5 Million.

Continuing to provide the best possible experience for the promoter, performer and patron, the DCU Center is owned by the City of Worcester and managed by SMG, the world’s leading private management and developing firm for public assembly facilities. Headquartered in Philadelphia, SMG provides management services to over 200 venues. SMG also offers food and beverage operations through our in house catering company, SAVOR… Catering by SMG.
