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.

This was already a good facility, but the new addition by talented architects, Ubl Design Group, has turned it into a world class facility with some much-needed additional space. It's well done and compliments but doesn't overpower the original building. Nice work!

The concert was very good. The parking situation at the Civic Center is terrible. People had to wait outside in the cold because the doors did not open until 7 and there is very limited room inside to wait. The doors could have opened sooner as the workers were standing around waiting until 7. There was plans to build a... More

Traveled to Bismarck this weekend for the Disney Live show with friends and family. I highly recommend the civic center. It was an easy location, great parking and easy signage inside. Had no issues, very clean.

My family attended the PBR on Saturday June 14th-our 1st PBR. We had no idea what to expect and if it would keep the kids' attention. We were so happy we went! The security staff at the civic center are very professional and are very knowledgable of where things are and the best way to get to concessions, bathrooms, and... More
