Spaces on City Hall Plaza
This is an area where the Mayor often gives speeches and remarks. It can also be a place for poetry readings, protests, and other public gatherings.
This is a flexible, rentable facility facing Congress Street that is equipped with a restroom and other facilities. It can host gallery exhibits, workshops, panel discussions, and more. It includes a 40x60’ covered stage and has vehicular service access.
The main event space on the plaza is a large, paved area that accommodates up to 12,000 visitors. It can be used for large-scale programs like festivals, ice skating, markets, and more.
The renovation included creating seven "plug and play" locations for community groups to utilize, and there are three smaller event spaces on the plaza. The Plaza Circle, Hanover Walkway, and North Terrace can be used for performances and other gatherings.
