Brandon Focuses on Community

People often ask what makes Brandon so unique. The short answer is that Brandon has grown to a city of over 25,000, people but has never lost its small-town charm. Our schools, churches, businesses, citizens, and government work together to improve life for those that call Brandon home. Our diverse offering of programs bring people together and spend time with each other.

Back to School Bash

Back to School Bash kicks off the school year and allows parents and children time to walk around and see their friends and visit vendors, grab a bag of popcorn, and watch the Brandon band, cheerleaders, and dance team.

Princess Ball

Princess Ball is a unique event to Brandon where dads and their daughters get to spend time together dancing, visiting friends, having pictures made with Miss Mississippi, and using props in the photo booth.

Independence Day Celebration

Our Independence Day Celebration at the City of Brandon Amphitheater provides something for everyone. From the children’s bike parade and space jumps to the car show, food trucks, and DJ. This free community event is a great way to enjoy some summer fun for everyone. Don’t miss the exciting fireworks show that wraps up the evening of festivities.

Fall Festival

As the cool fall air settles in, we gather together as a community to enjoy, hay rides, food trucks, some friendly competition with a corn hole tournament, and many other fun, fall activities.

Christmas Parade

Kick off the holidays with our hometown tradition of a Christmas Parade through the historic downtown Brandon streets. You are not going to want to miss Santa’s wave as he stops by to help kick-off the holiday season.
