The facility hosts a variety of events, including concerts, sporting events, family shows, conventions, trade-shows and meetings. It is owned by the City of Worcester and managed by SMG, a private management firm for public assembly facilities.

The naming rights were purchased in 2004 by DCU, Digital Federal Credit Union.

Worcester was considered its own region for centuries; however, with the encroachment of Boston’s suburbs, it now marks the western periphery of the Boston-Worcester-Manchester (MA-RI-NH) U.S. Census Combined Statistical Area (CSA) (Greater Boston). The city features many fine examples of Victorian-era mill architecture.
