The Alabama 4-H Conference Center features a beautiful open air chapel in a gorgeous natural setting. We offer two locations for your reception in either our open air Pavilion beside Lay Lake or the Auditorium with an exquisite tree top view.

Planning a reception or large event?

  • Pavilion on Lay Lake is ideal for your special occasion, night or day
