Rough Rider Events Center

Watford City, North Dakota

With a town motto like, “Come Be Our Guest,” it’s no surprise that Watford City is now home to a new statewide events and convention center with arenas for hockey, figure skating, and roller skating, basketball and volleyball courts, a fieldhouse with removable turf for soccer and baseball, a lap pool and a leisure pool, a 1,000-capacity convention center, a 3,000-seat auditorium, a running/walking track, a rock climbing wall, laser tag, and six bounce houses. The gymnastics club has a new home for growth within the community. The Rough Rider Events Center is attached to the new High School, also by JLG Architects, through a glass-enclosed commons.
