Kentucky Community Welcomes New Indoor/Outdoor Music Venue

The PromoWest Pavilion

Newport, Kentucky.

The pavilion includes three double-leaf smoke vents manufactured by The BILCO Company that allow firefighters to bring a fire under control by removing smoke, heat and gasses from a burning building. 


What is the purpose of the pavilion?
The $40 million pavilion will accommodate indoor audiences of up to 2,700 with an outdoor capacity of 7,000. The facility is expected to attract up to 400,000 fans and host nearly 180 events annually.

What is significant about this new pavilion?
The venue plaza will be linked to future phases of the Ovation development via a pedestrian walkway. The rest of the 25-acre mixed use development located on the Ohio River across from downtown Cincinnati will include office buildings, hotels, residential units, retail stores and a grocery store.

Smoke vents: The sweeping, 24,000 square foot roof includes three double leaf smoke vents from BILCO. The smoke vents are designed to control smoke to aid building evacuation and firefighters efforts and to prevent the spread of fire during an emergency.

The PromoWest Pavilion at Ovation in Newport, Kentucky is an indoor/outdoor concert venue that will host nearly 180 events a year. 
Did you know? Artists and entourages will relax and unwind before and after performances in the Ovation King Records green room. King Records is the label where James Brown and others recorded songs in the 1950s and ‘60s. A mural that adorns the walls includes King Record stars Otis Williams, Philip Paul and Bootsy Collins.
