The Von Braun Civic Center in Huntsville had been around as long as I can remember. It is a small venue compared to those in larger cities. It is the home of the Huntsville Havoc hockey team. Many entertainers have performed here throughout the years. Concerts are great here because of the more intimate atmosphere.

Always something wonderful and amazing going on here! Love the weekend family events they have. Love the builders and garden shows, craft holiday shows that is where everyone who is crafty shows up. Makes awesome Christmas gifts, that are treasured for years come!

Had a conference there and, while it is ok, the arrangement of the space is a bit awkward and spread out, restrooms are definitely needing some attention, and the overall feel of the facility is tired.

I've been to the "VBC" many times for homecomings and different events. It is a decent facility but the bathrooms need to be more clean (VERY OCD) especially during homecoming. I'm pretty sure the men's bathroom isn't as bad as the women's. I've never had food from here but it looks good. Not willing to pay the price for a... More

Nice place to have Graduation but need more signage for out of town guest. We just followed the crowd and hoped we were in the right place. Traffic was a total nightmare in that area...

The Von Braun Center (VBC), is amazing, interestingly enough there can be several events taking place within the VBC, essentially, there's several halls which can host multiple events at the same time, you could literally be attending a symphony in one hall and a wedding banquet inside another hall.... You do have to pay for parking and some of the... More

The VBC is a great place for concerts. We've been to Comedy shows, musical concerts, Broadway theater league plays, and hockey games. We have a nice place to park across the street in the deck that is safe and secure. The facilities inside the center are always clean and comfortable. The staff is helpful and friendly. Security guards around to... More

I just attended our annual conference which was held in Huntsville this year. The VBC had many rooms for smaller meetings and larger arena areas for vendors as well as banquet space. Parking is available all around or in the deck underneath the VBC.

So it seems we have lots of events here. Most are pretty good. But the high parking fee's are aggravating. The city owns the lot across from VBCC and charges $5, but VBCC owns the south hall lot and charges $7 or 8. This is on top of the average event fee and crappy Ticketmaster fee's they charge.
