Wasn't impressed with the Center. Visited for the first time in August. Even though it was a warm summer evening outside, the event center operators should have turned on the air conditioning earlier in the day. It was way too warm inside, especially with so many people. Fold down seats were fine for me but the guy next to me... More

This over priced behemoth is hard to access, has no parking for people with or without disabilities that doesn't require a lot of walking and should NEVER have been expanded.

Free parking but you will need to walk a considerable distance if they run out of parking spots in the lot next to the civic center. It's especially painful if you have to park next to the mall during the winter months, very cold in North Dakota in the winter! So try to arrive early if attending an event in... More

Great place to see a concert, see an event or go to a Pride of Dakota Show! The Bismarck Event Center as it is now called always has a lot of fun things going on and normally at a very reasonable price! With their added rooms they can offer so much more and I can not wait to see where... More

The city citizens voted no to spend millions of dollars to expand a failing city building, but the city commissions overrode the vote. Therefore the building was expanded and you will pay to attend any event or eat in the city. The building g is poorly built and has about 3 functions per year. I wonder update not attend anything...

We went to the Joan Jett/Heart concert. Joan's sound was perfect and you could hear every word she said and sang. Then Heart began and you couldn't understand the song lyrics or anything that was said between the songs. Major fail. We were in the stands, but friends on the floor said it was the same there. We should have... More

the inside needs a major makeover...I did like that it was easy to get to, not a bad walk to the front door

We went to a wedding show and it was a good set up in the Civic Center. There are plenty of bathrooms for women.
