Village Green will be a family-oriented arts and entertainment lifestyle venue, located in the City of Hoover’s first official entertainment district. The design is driven by the mission to create a thriving hub for arts and culture within the already vibrant commercial development at Stadium Trace Village. Village Green will combine an amphitheater stage, a large multi-purpose pavilion, a multi-use bar, an outdoor recreation area, and a spacious green lawn into a single interactive environment that promotes art, culture, sustainability, education, and community. Village Green is designed as a community-centric space with the ability to hold larger ticketed events periodically.
Village Green consists of amphitheater seating around a 10,000-square-foot public area with a synthetic turf lawn. A pedestrian street flanks Village Green to the north which provides dedicated foot traffic access to the site. On the southern portion of the lawn sits a 40-ft by 32-ft covered stage, including 800-square-feet of stage support space with a large green room for entertainers.
A 900-square-foot bar with a 500-square-foot covered seating area lines the stage to the west. This multi-purpose, full-service bar will have a warming kitchen for food and beverage needs. A 500-square-foot covered tent area is provided for private rentals or VIP ticketing during major concert events. Tucked away between the bar and stage is a 1,400-square-foot secure play area for children to enjoy which includes play mounds, a crawling tunnel, a slide, musical themed playscapes, and an interactive art wall. Additionally, additional parking will be available in the area for Village Green patrons.
“This new venue has everyone in the city excited. Hoover is a destination city in Alabama, and Village Green will broaden our citizens and visitors’ opportunities for great, kid-friendly family entertainment, restaurants, and exposure to local artists. Local businesses will benefit from patrons visiting from all over the state.”
– Frank Brocato, City of Hoover Mayor
