About Casper Events Center

The Casper Events Center is the premier location for entertainment in Wyoming. Located in Casper, this 8,395-seat arena has welcomed everyone from the Sesame Street Live show and rockers Sugar Ray to monster truck rallies and of course the beloved Casper Coyotes. The array of entertainment here is a sign of how amazingly versatile and exciting this venue really is!

Founded in 1982 solely by the City’s optional 1 percent sales tax, this is truly a center for the people. It took $22-million to build the arena and the cost was well worth it. Now, it offers locals and not-so-locals the chance to see their favorite entertainment in a top-notch venue where customer care is a primary focus.

The Casper Event Center was built high on Casper Mountain to offer spectacular views of the Platte River Valley. For any nature lover, the view alone will be worth the visit. But, of course, that’s just the beginning. Our venue was carefully crafted to showcase talent we bring in. Whether it’s a million-dollar selling singer or an exciting national rodeo, you’ll be delighted at the presentation and want to come back to see more at our thrilling location.
