Lewis & Clark County Fairgrounds Site Plan

The ARC will be located at the Lewis and Clark County Fairgrounds and operated by the Fair Board. The Fair Board has a  long track record of attracting events to meet the needs of our community and it runs them successfully. The existing Exhibit Hall is currently booked two years in advance. The ARC will continue that tradition and bring new and exciting events to our residents.

Main Floor Arena

The Arena has been designed to attract events that have bypassed our region because of the lack of appropriate facilities. With 12,500 seats, The ARC will attract high quality musical and stage acts, state and regional sports tournaments, rodeos, monster truck events, farm and tractor shows, and serve as a focal point for communitywide events. The possibilities are endless.

Here are 2 examples of the more obvious examples of what is needed in a Natatorium.  If cost were not a limiting factor, the 50-meter pool would be the envy of every aquatic user in the State. But cost is a driving factor, yet the smaller, 25-yard x 25-meter competition pool, will meet the growing needs of our community. The Recreation/Warm pool will be 7,000+ yards and accommodate swim lessons for all ages, gentle and active water aerobics, adaptive swim sessions, and a wide range of programs geared toward water safety and exercise. The possibilities are endless.


The Fieldhouse will have indoor, multi-use hardcourts and multi-use artificial turf fields. The need for these special facilities is overwhelming. Scroll through the designs below and you will see the that every thought has been given to meet the growing needs of the sporting groups of all ages.
