Rushmore Plaza Civic Center Arena Addition

The Rushmore Plaza Civic Center is a 150,000-square-foot exhibition center in Rapid City, South Dakota that contains a 10,000 seat, multi-purpose arena. Home to many large events including the Black Hills Stock Show and Rodeo, Lakota Nations Invitational, and the Black Hills Homebuilders Expo, it also showcases many motorcycles during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. The Civic Center serves as the main event center for western South Dakota.

The new arena was designed to double the capacity of the Civic Center, and was completed in 2008. It allows two simultaneous events to occur under one building, and serves as the second largest venue center in South Dakota. The new arena features luxury boxes for events and the Rapid City Rush home games.
