Allen Event Center encourages guests to adhere to the new clear bag policy and to leave prohibited items at home or in their cars.

How many bags can each person bring into Allen Event Center?
One approved clear bag, either a one-gallon Ziploc style bag or a 14" x 14" x 6" clear bag, plus a small clutch. All approved bags, including clear bags, are subject to search.
