Unfortunately, the operation of large entertainment venues like Hoover Auditorium will not be possible this summer due to COVID-19 restrictions. Though it grieves us tremendously, we are planning to operate this summer without utilizing Hoover Auditorium and are creating a new entertainment lineup outdoors at the Steele Memorial Bandstand and Pavilion to practice safe social distancing. View our online calendar for our complete summer entertainment series.
