Clear Bag Policy

The Monroe Civic Center’s Clear Bag Policy is consistent with our effort to put safety first. All guests and their bags will be subject to search when entering Monroe Civic Center property for concerts and other large events.

Monroe Civic Center continues to review its policies to enhance public safety and improve efficiencies. Customer experience and the safety of our guests are a top priority for the Civic Center. Limiting the size and style of bags carried into the venue will aid in maintaining safe and secure environments, decrease the time waiting to enter the venue and improve the overall experience. The measure will enhance safety inside and outside.

  • Clear plastic or vinyl bags that do not exceed 12” x 6” x 12”
  • One gallon clear plastic bags
  • Small clutch bags that do not exceed 4.5” x 6.5”
  • All backpacks, regardless of size, camera bags, large purses, fanny packs, and seat cushions, as well as any bags larger than 12” x 6” x 12,” whether clear or non-clear, will be strictly prohibited. Exceptions may be made for diaper bags (with a baby) and bags that contain necessary medical items, which must be inspected and approved.
  • Weapons of any kind are not permitted

Any prohibited bag inside and outside the venue will be highly visible and easily identifiable. This initiative supports the Department of Homeland Security’s “If You See Something, Say Something” campaign. A clear bag is easily visible and can be quickly searched, thus allowing staff to be more efficient in checking bags that are brought into the Civic Center.

Backpacks are not permitted regardless of the type and variety.

Each person is allowed 1 bag that follows the permitted bag regulations outlined above.

Customers with a prohibited bag will not be permitted inside the venue. Guests carrying bags that do not meet the criteria of the bag policy will be asked to return to their vehicles and transfer their belongings to an approved clear plastic bag before entering the venue. There are no provisions to exchanges bags at the door and any bags left unattended will not be the responsibility of the Monroe Civic Center.
