Macon-Bibb Breaks Ground for Macon-Bibb Amphitheater

MACON, Ga. - A festive celebration and groundbreaking ceremony like no other was held on Thursday, February 24, 2022, for the Macon-Bibb County Amphitheater on the site of the new construction adjacent to the Macon Mall.

The ceremony will feature music, remarks from Mayor Lester Miller, community leaders, representatives from area businesses and organizations, Commissioner Al Tillman. Representatives from the recently named Design/Build team will discuss the plans to design the new facility and how they will use community feedback. 

Earlier this month, Macon-Bibb announced the selection of Piedmont Construction Group, TVS, Stage Front, and HGOR as the Design/Build Team for the new amphitheater that will be built at the Macon Mall. Combined, this team brings extensive experience in design/build projects, mixed-use facilities, entertainment venues, auditoriums, and amphitheaters. 

The new amphitheater will have a 10,000-person capacity with covered and fixed seats, lawn seats, green space, artists’ dressing rooms, a green room, ticket booths, vendor and event areas, transitional walkways, specific areas for crews, retail areas, and other amenities. The first step of the Design/Build Team will be to work with Macon-Bibb County, local and state partners, industry representatives, and the community to create a final design.
