Mohegan Sun Arena Named Casino Venue of the Year by Pollstar

UNCASVILLE, CT – Mohegan Sun Arena has been named “Best Casino/Resort Venue of the Year” at the 35th Annual Pollstar Awards in Los Angeles, CA. The Pollstar Awards recognize and support the live entertainment business’ most innovative companies, venues, artists, tours and executives. “Best Casino/Resort Venue of the Year” is an inaugural category for the award ceremony, making Mohegan Sun Arena the first to receive the recognition.

“With over 1,200 casinos in the U.S., to be singled out as the best by Pollstar is a tribute to the men and women who run our entertainment venues,” said Tom Cantone, President of Sports & Entertainment for Mohegan. “When you put people first, great things happen. This is the second national recognition Mohegan Sun has received for entertainment this year. Both accolades are a validation of excellence for the Mohegan brand, and our dedication to programming some of the best entertainment in the industry. Thank you to Pollstar, our partners at Live Nation, and the experts who voted for us.”

The recognition from Pollstar’s panel of experts and members marks the 20th national entertainment-focused award received by Mohegan Sun. In December 2023, Mohegan Sun was named the 2024 “Best Casino with Live Entertainment” in Newsweek’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards.

In addition to the 10,000-seat, award-winning Mohegan Sun Arena, Mohegan Sun’s live entertainment venues include the Wolf Den, Comix Roadhouse, Novelle, The Lansdowne Irish Pub & Music House, The Cabaret Theatre, and the newly renovated Sun Patio.
