“This new venue has everyone in the city excited.

Local businesses will benefit from patrons visiting from all over the state.”Mayor Frank Brocato, City of Hoover
Located in the City of Hoover’s first official entertainment district, Village Green is designed to be a family-oriented arts and entertainment lifestyle venue. The 10,000-square-foot public area is meant to create a thriving hub for arts and culture within Stadium Trace Village, and will include:
- A 40-ft by 32-ft covered amphitheater stage, including 800 sq ft of stage support space
- A large multi-purpose pavilion
- A multi-use bar with covered air-conditioned seating area, named The Deesh
- An outdoor recreation area
- A spacious green lawn
- A 1,400 sq ft secure play area for children, with play mounds, a crawling tunnel, a slide, musical themed playscapes and an interactive art wall
In addition to a community-centric space, Village Green is designed to have the ability to host larger, ticketed events when needed.
“This exciting new Lifestyle Venue and Entertainment District will give the City of Hoover another great attraction for our visitors and residents. With our 19 hotels, multiple restaurants, the Hoover Met Complex and great shopping, this just adds another great attraction for our city.”Tynette Lynch, City of Hoover Tourism Director
