What are the security policies for Wells Fargo Arena?


Bags no larger than 13" x 15" x 6’’ will be permitted into Wells Fargo Arena. Guests who have bags larger than this size will be asked to return them to their vehicles or discard them. This is in addition to the existing policy that all bags, purses or personal items of any size are subject to search. Diaper bags or Medical bags are allowed to exceed that size limit, but will be searched. This policy is subject to change based on a shows request.

Entrance Security

Wells Fargo Arena utilizes walk-through metal detectors and bag checks upon entry. To expedite your entrance into Wells Fargo Arena, fans are encouraged to leave non-essential items at home.


Small point & shoot cameras are allowed. Professional cameras (specifically cameras with professional/detachable lenses and flash) are not permitted. The Iowa Events Center reserves the right to examine and prohibit the use of any camera that conflicts with the policy set by the event.
Audio recorders, video recorders and digital cameras with video capabilities are prohibited during all events.
