In the heart of Brandon, Mississippi, lies a brand new venue:  the Quarry. Fully equipped with a new nature trail, dog park, baseball facility, and amphitheatre, this 250 acres is sure to draw many families to the area. The idea for the venue sparked as a group of like-minded individuals sought  a way to draw others to Brandon and to have them consider raising a family there.

The amphitheatre itself has a capacity of 8,300 people in order to host popular artists such as Chris Stapleton and the Imagine Dragons throughout the year. As Community Bank serves as a huge sponsor of the theatre, Community Bank employees and other members of the “Community Bank club” are treated with great luxury. Patrons gain access to the facility 30 minutes prior to opening, dine on complimentary hors d’oeuvres, and enjoy live music in the “Community Bank Courtyard.”

The first artist  to perform at the Quarry was Chris Young on his “Losing Sleep” Tour. Young performed Wednesday, April 18th, followed by Brantley Gilbert, Dave Matthews Band, and others.

For the past few years, C Spire has sponsored a concert at the end of May behind the Baptist Healthplex in Madison. Replacing these yearly concerts with their own, C Spire has hopes that the Brandon Amphitheatre and its performing artists will be more successful and enjoyable for viewers.

This fifteen million dollar project is being funded by The City of Brandon’s two percent food and beverage tax that was put in place two years ago. The Quarry is bringing much excitement to the city and many are eager to see the new artists lined up to perform.
