Northern Lights Arena is a premier twin-sheet facility located in Alpena, Michigan. Opened in 2003, our facility is the result of a dedicated community effort to build Northeast Michigan's first indoor ice arena.

Our state of the art primary rink provides seating for 1,200, an in-rink concession stand, six large, full service private locker rooms and an 1/8 mile rubberized running track.
Non-Ice Events
