Saint Paul RiverCentre opened its doors in May 1998 to complement the existing Roy Wilkins Auditorium and Saint Paul Civic Center. Shortly after opening, the Civic Center was demolished and ground was broken to build Xcel Energy Center. Since 1998, Saint Paul RiverCentre and The Legendary Roy Wilkins Auditorium have hosted more than 3,000 events.
Saint Paul RiverCentre features an intimate 27,000 square foot Grand Ballroom which has hosted lavish galas for up to 1,800 guests. 15 newly carpeted executive meeting rooms, many with stunning river views, all feature acoustical and moveable walls, individual lighting, sound and climate control systems, and wireless internet services.
