THE VALUE OF A MID-SIZE VENUE
Bismarck-Mandan has many fabulous small music venues that can hold 50-60 people comfortably. Our community also has the 833-person gorgeous Belle Mehus auditorium. Despite the value of these great spaces, there is not a home for musicians and bands that draw a mid-sized audience. Luckily, there are great spaces in Bismarck-Mandan that have the ability to fill this need.
One venue space that meets this need is the local Bismarck-Mandan Elks. The ballroom space at the Elks has the capacity to hold a mid-sized audience comfortably, there is an elevated stage, an attached bar space, and when Main Stage Events rents this venue for music events, the space is open to all ticket holders regardless of Elks membership status. Everybody wins!
