Ford Wyoming Center

The Ford Wyoming Center a beautiful, state-of-the-art complex built high on a hill overlooking the city of Casper. The Ford Wyoming Center lends new meaning to the term “versatile.” Rough-and-tumble professional rodeo, Broadway in Casper, major musical and performance acts — these are just a few of the many events found at this conveniently located and accessible venue. The shape of the arena is basically that of a horseshoe, with retractable seating to allow great flat floor space for the main event including trade shows, expos, banquets and more. The Ford Wyoming Center also has breakout rooms and staging areas to accommodate large events needing even more space or smaller events wanting to take in the best view in town from the building’s meeting rooms.
