Imagine the Possibilities
Aldrich Arena can be transformed, in a matter of hours, to meet your needs for large group events such as craft shows, conventions, sports events, trade shows, concerts, graduations, birthday parties, animal shows and much more. Non-ice rentals are available from approximately mid-March through mid-October. The arena is located within the Twin Cities market area of two million people.
