Berry Events Center is a 4,300-seat multi-purpose arena in Marquette, Michigan, U.S. The arena opened in 1999. It is home to the Northern Michigan Wildcats ice hockey and basketball teams. The arena also houses the US Speedskating Team. It was built in 1999, and is named for John W. Berry, Jr., class of 1971, a primary benefactor of the facility. The arena replaced Lakeview Arena, the home of Wildcat hockey for its first twenty-three seasons.

The arena contains 16 luxury suites and standing room for 400 fans. It is also the premier sports and entertainment venue in the Upper Peninsula, accommodating up to 5,800 for concerts.

It is one of two arenas in the CCHA (University of Alaska-Fairbanks the other) to have olympic size ice (200 feet long by 100 ft. wide).
