DEE EVENTS CENTER

What do The Beach Boys, Johnny Cash, Kenny G and Taylor Swift all have in common? They have all performed in the Dee Events Center. While the Dee Events Center has hosted these famed visitors and more, it is the home of the Weber State University men’s and women’s basketball teams.

This $11.3 billion, 43 acre facility has also housed NCAA tournaments, Utah Jazz preseason games, and Big Sky tournaments, as well as other NCAA basketball playoff games. “The Dee” is also a site for numerous religious and community events, graduations, and high school basketball championships.
