The Alario Center also hosts many annual sports events including AAU Boys Basketball tournaments, boxing matches, cheerleading/dance competitions, wrestling, professional wrestling, gymnastics meets and volleyball tournaments. There are also many non-sports events that are annually held at the Alario Center including the FIRST Robotics Bayou Regional, the Governor’s West Bank Luncheon, concerts, college graduation ceremonies and numerous sales & expos.
On April 4, 2014, the venue hosted Supercard of Honor VIII, a professional wrestling event promoted by national wrestling promotion Ring of Honor (ROH).
Because of the Center’s size and location in Jefferson Parish, many parish schools hold events there, including graduations. One such school is Patrick F. Taylor Science and Technology Academy.
The Alario Center complex also includes Segnette Field, a baseball stadium that is the home of the Loyola University New Orleans’ Wolfpack Baseball program.
The center is named for the father of John Alario, the dean of the Louisiana State Legislature.
