2020 Hoover’s Hometown Days Cancelled

Unfortunately, it is our regret to have to announce that Hoover’s Hometown Days for 2020 has been canceled amid concerns from COVID-19. While we love bringing the community together for our annual festival and seeing people come in from out of town, 2020 seems to be a poor year for that to happen.

Believe it or not, we’ll still start planning for next year’s event in a couple of months and we want to see you there! Please keep safe and we hope to really celebrate being able to come together again in 2021.

Snapchat Filter

At the 2019 Hoover’s Hometown Days event, be sure to find our event’s Snapchat filter. During Hoover’s Hometown Days, you’ll be able to find the filter ranging from the Main Street Stage to the Fire Department to the Hoover Presidential Library.

(due to cost of including a significantly larger, we apologize for not being able to add the area encompassing the Hoover-Ball courts in the filter area).
