Trail Drive Management Corp., the not-for-profit operators of Dickies Arena, will host a ribbon cutting ceremony and community open house Oct. 26 to formally welcome the community into the world-class arena.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony will be at 10 a.m. on the east side of the arena, on Simmons Bank Plaza. Immediately following the ceremony, the arena will be open for self-guided tours that guests can register for in advance by visiting Ticketmaster.com.

Tickets to tour the arena are free, and there will be a limited number of tickets available throughout the day, between 10:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Guests are invited to experience the beautiful architecture and state-of-the-art spaces while trying a variety of food and beverage options that will be available for purchase at a discounted rate.

Throughout the day, guests will be encouraged to enjoy activities on the Simmons Bank Plaza. Performers include Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live’s BIGFOOT, WWE Smackdown Women’s Champion Bayley, a Harlem Globetrotter and a presentation by Cirque du Soleil.
