All tickets sold for last weekend's Rough 'N' Rowdy can still be used for this weekend's events. Additional tickets also are available.
The West Virginia Hunting and Fishing Show also starts at noon on Friday, and will last through Sunday.
Smith said having two large events at the same time is nothing new for the Civic Center, and likely will help both events.
The venue previously has hosted large concerts with the Hunting and Fishing Show, and both events saw an increase in ticket sales.
Smith said Civic Center staff stayed busy all last weekend because, in addition to the Fairs and Festivals Convention, the Grand Hall also was used as a staging area for the Federal Emergency Management Agency's water distribution operation.
Workers sorted water at the Civic Center to be sent to giveaway locations around the Kanawha Valley. Smith said FEMA moved out Sunday night, and by Monday morning the last of the water had been trucked away.
