The Rocky Mount Event Center is a unique story. A multi-million dollar facility at the center of a powerful vision to use sports tourism as a catalyst for not only driving economic impact, but the revitalization of downtown Rocky Mount, NC.

Conveniently located midway between Miami and New York at 285 NE Main St, Rocky Mount, NC 27801, the City of Rocky Mount is using the new Event Center as a way of transforming itself from a colorful cross-roads town into a major sports tourism and events destination.
