Sudduth Coliseum, in the Lake Charles Civic Center, is a 7,450-seat multi-purpose arena in Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA. Located on Lakeshore Drive, it is the main arena of the Lake Charles Civic Center. It is a venue for hosting concerts and special events, including the 2006 Louisiana State Choir festival and Contraband Days. The center is named for former Lake Charles MayorJames Sudduth.
Perhaps the proudest accomplishment of the center was during Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, when it served as a shelter for displaced residents whose homes were devastated by the storms. It also serves as a host for gun shows, dance performances, professional and amateur fights, school field trips, The National Day of Prayer ceremony in Lake Charles, and about anything else a Civic Center would host. Contraband Days is a large festival held on the grounds.
