Forest Hills Stadium is moving forward with plans to become a year-round venue, and is introducing full-plumbing bathrooms and an automat for food service in the fifth year after its 2013 re-opening.
The 95-year-old venue in Queens, N.Y., was renovated and re-opened as a concert venue and is booked by Madison House Presents through a deal with AEG.
Forest Hills Stadium is to have a skating rink and holiday vendors in the winter after the concert season, the next step in making it a year-round venue, according to AM New York.
The venue has previously used port-a-johns but now will include permanent, “gender-inclusive bathrooms” with running water.
The automats are a throwback to the historic venue’s previous use of the hot food dispenser.
Helping in that effort are newly announced founding partners Heineken, American Express, Bulova and Bacardi.
“We are thrilled to have Heineken, American Express, Bulova and Bacardi as our 2018 Founding Partners,” Josh Gold, VP of AEG Global Partnerships said in a statement. “These world class brands have seen the vision of what we are building in this historic venue and we couldn’t be happier to welcome them to Forest Hills.”
