The Enid Event Center is a two-story, 4,000 seat arena in Enid, Oklahoma. The center is located between the Cherokee Strip Conference Center and Convention Hall in downtown Enid. It opened on June 15, 2013 with the Greater Enid Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.[5] The building was designed by Convergence Design and constructed by Key Construction as part of the Enid Renaissance project, a 24 million dollar project which includes the renovation of Convention Hall and the addition of 1,100 additional parking spaces in the downtown area.[4] The former Geronimo Motor Company building is one of a few buildings that was torn down for parking accommodations.[4]
