Dear Students, Parents, Teachers & Friends of Education,

Innovation Amphitheater Ribbon Cutting 

Local officials, dignitaries and guests were on hand for the ribbon cutting at the Innovation Amphitheater. The 1,500 capacity venue is a joint venture by Barrow County and the Barrow County School System. Construction began on the nearly $4 million project in November and wrapped up earlier this month. Guests had the opportunity to view the Amphitheater and checkout seating arrangements, including sample suite/VIP seating. Live music was provided by Bulletproof.

Assisting BCSS Superintendent Chris McMichael with the ribbon cutting were Michael Renshaw, Jerry Golden, BCSS Board of Education Members, Barrow Chamber Ambassadors, Carroll Daniel Construction, Lindsay, Pope, Brayfield & Associates and McFarland Dyer & Associates. 

First ticketed concert is Montgomery Gentry who will appear July 7th. Tickets are available on the Innovation Amphitheater website .
