The waiting to get in and out of the facility is getting worse every year with all the security. Need more detectors to speed the lines along.

Attended the 2018 NAIA National Basketball Championships in March. Some of the least comfortable seats I've ever sat in at an arena. I'm 6' 4" with long legs, and my knees were jammed against the back of the seats in the next row when we...More

Since the rebuild after a tornado tore off the roof, the acoustics are vastly better and major concerts come through this venue much smaller than most. Many improvements and a wide range of events, several hundred per year there.

August of each year, the fair is in Billings for 1-full week. The vendors are creative, the rides have changed, the music is fun, the rodeo is wild, and fair-food...love it 1-time-a-year! The food kiosks were in an abundance, more than ever, great choices!

Excellent site for dog show. Plenty of room for Rv's and day parking. Buildings for dog grooming and show rings were A/C. Grassy areas for walking dogs. Good experience.

We only experienced last minute general admission for the PBR here; but the Metrapark was very clean and relatively new. The view of the arena even from the general admission area was decent. We could see this venue being great for concerts and other events...More

It's probably not a bad idea to buy the tickets in advance although it's hard to predict the crowds this far in advance. In the past there have been discounted tickets to some of the MontanaFair related activities. You can... More
