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.

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.

Krewe de Roux

Krewe de Roux is the annual city of Brandon and Rankin Chamber celebration of Mardi Gras. The parade rolls through the streets of downtown Brandon on Friday evening, which includes a post parade block party. The annual gumbo cook off is held on Saturday at the Brandon Amphitheater. The event includes dozens of gumbo cooking teams, kids zone, and a king cake eating contest.
