About the Facility
If it’s happening in Wyoming, chances are it’s happening at the Ford Wyoming Center. Built high on a hill overlooking the city, Casper Mountain, and the scenic Platte River Valley, the Ford Wyoming Center lends new meaning to the term “accommodating.” Each year, people attend concerts, tradeshows, conferences, and banquets, or sporting events at our facility.
A world of entertainment in the heart of the Rockies.
Located nearly equidistant between Billings, Rapid City, Salt Lake City, Denver, Omaha, and Boise, Casper is the ideal location for regional conventions, tradeshows, and special events. In years past, the Center has been proud host of a wide variety of theatrical and musical acts, ranging from big-name recording artists (such as Reba McEntire, Rob Zombie, Alice Cooper, ZZ Top, BB King, Sir Elton John, Foo Fighters, and Carrie Underwood) to the highly successful Broadway In Casper series. The Center is also home for major sporting events including the College National Finals Rodeo and State High School Tournaments.

We also offer a full-service catering kitchen, alcohol service, concession stands, and a friendly, experienced staff ready to help make your next event a success.
Wyoming’s recreation and entertainment destination
Nestled in the shadow of Casper Mountain, where the great rolling prairies of the upper Midwest meet the majestic grandeur of the Rocky Mountains, Casper is Wyoming’s shopping, entertainment and media center. The mountains, rivers, and lakes near Casper offer abundant opportunities for outdoor recreation including skiing, boating, hiking, camping, golfing, hunting and fishing. An ice arena, baseball and football teams, fine museums, movie theatres, nightclubs, and a theatre for the performing arts provide for indoor relaxation. Casper features numerous hotels and motels, a large shopping mall, and countless quality dining establishments to offer every amenity for visitors to the city. Both Natrona County International Airport and Interstate 25 provide convenient access to Casper.
The shape of the arena is basically that of a horseshoe, with retractable seating to allow greater flat floor space. The overall floor dimensions are 235 feet in length, 120 feet in width (with seats retracted) and 87.6 feet in height. The trusses span a total of 294 feet to produce a column free arena and spectator space; 57.5 feet being the lowest point above the main floor.
