Hersheypark Arena History
Since 1936, Hersheypark Arena has hosted memorable concerts and family shows. Beginning in 1938 and continuing until their move to Giant Center in 2002, the Hershey Bears called this 7,225 seat arena home for many years!
Hersheypark Arena was built during the Great Depression, as part of Milton Hershey's "Great Building Campaign," to provide jobs. The Arena, along with other monumental structures such as The Hotel HersheySM, Community Center, Hershey Theatre, and Hersheypark Stadium were constructed, transforming the town into a major tourist attraction that continues to grow in popularity each year.
