ENID — In a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday, Enid’s Central National Bank Center has become Stride Bank Center.
Present for the ceremony were Brud Baker, CEO, Stride Bank; Todd Earl, Market President, Stride Bank; Kevin Boryczki, GM, Stride Bank Center; and Bill Shewey, Mayor of Enid.
The arena is located at 302 South Grand in Enid.
Construction of the building started in May 2011 and it opened on June 15, 2013, and it opened as the Enid Event Center and Convention Hall with the Greater Enid Chamber of Commerce Business Expo.
The building was designed by Convergence Design and constructed by Key Construction as part of the Enid Renaissance project, a $24 million project which includes the renovation of Convention Hall and the addition of 1,100 additional parking spaces in the downtown area.
It became the Central National Bank Center on June 14, 2016.
Stride Bank Center is in the heart of downtown Enid. It is home to live entertainment, sporting events and consumer shows.
Since its beginning, the center has played host to such performers as country music star Gary Allan, Little Big Town, Martina McBride, Willie Nelson, and Chip Davis’s Mannheim Steamroller.
