Input from hundreds of meeting planners throughout our region was taken into consideration during the development and planning stages of the Event Center.  The facility has been specifically designed to achieve a convenient floor plan for a total on-site event. 


With 32,000 square feet and up to 17 different meeting rooms, the Center offers a gorgeous grand ballroom, with a wide variety of breakout meeting room options and exhibit space for over 100 exhibit booths. The Watertown Event Center is proud to be home of South Dakota’s finest amphitheater, with graduated seating of 284 seats, and equipped with state-of-the-art audio visual technology.  This versatile theater will easily accommodate a general session meeting, a dramatic performance, or even a small concert.


Our banquet professionals are versed in the subtleties of event, meeting and wedding etiquette. Every need is taken care of with the highest level of hospitality and care, ensuring the guest leaves with an event to remember.  

The regionally renowned and award-winning Minervas Restaurant is the exclusive on-site caterer for the Watertown Event Center.  Situated between the Ramkota Hotel and the Event Center, Minervas Restaurant provides the finest cuisine and perfect atmosphere for an after meeting drink, rehersal dinner, or coworker gathering.
