When you’re searching for a venue to hold a smaller show, convention, conference, family gathering or wedding, the Alerus Center’s 12 meetin
The Alerus Center, Grand Forks’ premiere performance and convention complex, is the perfect place to entertain and be entertained. Completed in 2001, with a recent remodel and new additions, it is considered one of the top facilities in the country.
The main arena, with a full set seating capacity of 21,000, has been used for a wide variety of events. As home to Division I-AA University of North Dakota football, they’ve hosted many exciting college games, in addition to other sports ranging from professional basketball and wrestling to bull riding and motocross. Some of the most popular performers in the nation – including Cher, Britney Spears, George Strait, Luke Bryan, Tim McGraw, Aerosmith and The Eagles – have all taken center stage at the Alerus. Because of a new state-of-the-art sound system, featuring Fulcrum loudspeakers, you’ll find the acoustics to be astounding, especially for such a large arena.
The friendly, knowledgeable staff will be there every step of the way to ensure your special event exceeds expectations.
