Mission Statement

The Von Braun Center is a multipurpose facility with the primary objective of facilitating and promoting events and activities in addition to generating economic benefit and improving the quality of life for the Huntsville community and surrounding areas.


The Von Braun Center is governed by a seven-member Board of control appointed by the Mayor of Huntsville and the City Council.  The Von Braun Center is an anchor within its community.  Located in downtown Huntsville, the VBC offers a beautiful facility for local, regional, and national events.  The VBC provides multiple venues for the presentation of cultural, educational, entertainment, sporting and social events.  The VBC has a staff of proven professionals ready to contribute to the success of your event.


The VBC was built thanks to the foresight of local leaders and a very real civic demand.  The facility built in 1975 was welcomed by the community and the demand for use continued, leading to three additions within a ten year period driven largely by local and civic demand.
