Niagara Falls Convention and Civic Center was an indoor multi-purpose venue, in Niagara Falls, New York, with a capacity of 10,000 people. It operated from 1973 to 2002.

The venue was built as part of an urban renewal project in the city. It actually was built in the center of a main thoroughfare, Falls Street, and blocked traffic to the falls. It also eliminated Jefferson Avenue and Erie Avenue, two main thoroughfares.

The building was designed by Johnson/Burgee Architects. Its arched design, which detractors say resembles an overly large Quonset hut, was inspired by the rainbows commonly seen at Niagara Falls, according to architect Philip Johnson. It was opened in 1973 to much fanfare.

In 2002, the convention center was closed, modified and re-opened as a gaming casino, Seneca Niagara Casino & Hotel which now occupies the site.
