Arena Event Schedule

Whether you're a lifelong fan of UVA basketball (much like UVA alum John Paul Jones), a music lover, comedy aficionado or a family looking for fun, you'll find there's something for you at John Paul Jones Arena. Home to both the UVA men's and women's basketball teams, the arena transforms into a major entertainment venue when there aren't players hustling up and down the court, hosting some of entertainment's biggest acts ranging from Carrie Underwood and Journey to the family-friendly Hot Wheels Monster Trucks Live. Luckily, Kimpton The Forum Hotel is less than a mile from the arena, so after being dazzled by athletes or entertainers in their prime, you can easily make your way back to unwind and debrief in comfort.
