Clear Bag Policy (directly from the Budweiser Events Centerwebsite)

To continue providing a safe environment for our guests and our staff as well as significantly accelerate entry into the arena, the Budweiser Events Center has implemented a policy limiting the type of bag and dimensions of those bags brought into the venue. Exclusions to this policy will be made for medically necessary items after a thorough inspection. While guests are encouraged to not bring any type of bags to the venue to expedite the entry process, they will be able to enter the Budweiser Events Center with the following style and size bag: • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and do not exceed 12” W x 12” H x 6” D • One-gallon clear plastic bags (Ziplock or similar) are permitted • One (1) personal item such as a small clutch or wallet not exceeding 4.5” x 6.5” in size may be brought into the arena • Guests are allowed one (1) large clear bag – either the 12” W x 12” H x 6” D clear bag or one-gallon Ziploc style bag – plus one (1) small personal item Prohibited items include but are not limited to: purses larger than a small clutch bag, briefcases, backpacks, computer bags or any bag larger than the permissible size.
