Epic Impact on Green Bay Music Scene
Epic Event Center will be 30,000 sf and host up to 2,000 people. Rich Otradovec of Ash Investors LLC owns the Gordman's property being renovated and developed for Epic. Epic Event Center expects to host 70-80 shows and special events each year. The venue will have a main floor and mezzanine areas for viewing and would offer drink service, a pickup lane for ride-share drivers and an attached outdoor area where food trucks could pull in to serve patrons on concert nights.
"I think the inside is what's going to be the most exciting part. We have a very big stage, we have an upper level mezzanine for viewing, so that would be more like a VIP area, there will be a bar up there too. And then downstairs we also have the ADA viewing deck which is right up front by the stage," Epic Event Center general manager Melissa Toonen said.
Construction is schedule to begin fall of 2020 and be open in 2021.
