Located in the Upper Lobby of our facility is our concession stand and fully-equipped catering kitchen. Concessions are primarily open during scheduled hockey games and tournaments. The catering kitchen includes a window that opens up to Meeting Room 2 allowing for smaller banquets to access the kitchen and be served easily.

We are proud to partner with two local businesses, Cornerstone Automotive and Kiser Construction, who have committed to supporting our community.
Cornerstone Automotive Arena
Serves as Elk River High School Boys’ and Girls’ home game rink and an ice and dry-floor exhibit space. It is also home to the Minnesota Squatch hockey team. The Cornerstone Arena features obstruction-free seating for 1,600 spectators on two sides of the arena with seatbacks, standing room space for 200 with drink rails and premium ADA accessibility. The family-owned dealership has a rich and unique history in Elk River where they began over 50 years ago. Cornerstone Automotive is committed to customer service and creating long-lasting relationships with their customers and families for generations. The Cornerstone Automotive team selected the graphics that adorn the arena highlighting Elk River hockey and figure skating and the inspirational messages throughout the arena.
Kiser Construction Arena
This space provides a cozy fan experience for 600 obstruction-free spectators for year-round ice activities including figure skating, summer training and winter season practices and games. Kiser provides expert damage restoration and remodeling services throughout the Twin Cities metro area. They have made advocating on behalf of homeowners and property managers a priority for a quick bounce back following unfortunate damage due to fire, water, or storms. Kiser Construction chose to recreate their branding into an arena logo with the traditional Elk River Elks red and black color scheme to highlight the local athletes while demonstrating their support for our community.
Located in our retail space, near the Field House, is iBackCheck. They are a sport facility clinic providing physical therapy, massage therapy, and chiropractic services.
