The legendary Medina Entertainment Center continues to grow and change since opening its doors September 6, 1956. We have celebrated over 60 years in the entertainment, food, and hospitality industries, and it has been an adventuresome journey for our now thriving business. Medina continues to be a destination for Minnesotans and guests nationwide for a variety of events each year.
One of Medina’s goals has been to provide the community with unlimited styles of exceptional dance music as well as the best in regional and national entertainment. The list of stars that have performed at Medina is endless. Musicians including Guy Lombardo, Chubby Checker, and Johnny Cash to Pat Benatar and Alice Cooper have graced Medina’s stage. Memorable performances include Willie Nelson, who signed autographs until 2:00 a.m., and Garth Brooks, whose show was not sold out! Recently, Bret Michaels, Slash, and Buck Cherry have also performed live, and we also have recurring performances from the Little River Band, Blackhawk and The Outlaws.
The Grand Ballroom is renown for providing years of dancing on an air cushioned, maple dance ﬂoor, considered the largest in the Midwest. We feature concerts from musical genres such as Old Tyme, Big Band, Country, Classic & Hard Rock, Cajun, Alternative, and 50’s, 60’s, 70’s, 80’s covers.
