The Prescott Valley Event Center (formerly Tim's Toyota Center and originally built as the Prescott Valley Convention & Events Center) is a 5,100-seat multi-purpose arena located at 3201 North Main Street in Prescott Valley, Arizona.

Since opening in November 2006, it is home to a variety of Arizona Interscholastic Association basketball and wrestling competitions; for instance, in 2011, it hosted the 1A and 2A Conference semifinal and finals games and the 3A Conference quarterfinals. It has also hosted a few monster truck shows.

The arena hosted the American Indoor Football's Arizona Outlaws in 2012 and the Central Hockey League's Arizona Sundogs until they suspended operations on August 21, 2014.

Tim's Toyota, a Toyota dealership in Prescott with used car lots in Prescott Valley and Chino Valley, paid an undisclosed sum to be the corporate sponsor and namesake of the arena. That deal expired on September 30, 2014, with the arena reverting to the Prescott Valley Event Center name.[7]
