Upgrades to the Fred start ahead of 2023 season

Visitors to the Frederick Brown, Jr., Amphitheater may notice a few changes when they return for the 2023 concert season.

Construction started on erecting stairs in the lawn seating area. The Fred's upgrade includes new lights guiding patrons down these stairs. Public works also plans to re-sod the lawn.

The 2,500-seat amphitheater hosted over a dozen shows in 2022. Performers like Travis Tritt and Chris Kirkpatrick of ‘NSYNC wowed crowds throughout the spring and summer.

We hope all future guests enjoy the new upgrades at the Fred.

Visit the Fred's website for more on the upcoming 2023 concert series.

Follow these tips to help avoid potential collisions: 

  • Unpredictable: Always remember deer are wildlife and therefore, can be unpredictable. A deer calmly standing on the side of a road may bolt into or across the road rather than away from it when startled by a vehicle.
  • One Deer Usually Means More: Take caution and slow down when a deer crosses. Deer generally travel in groups, so if one crosses, be prepared as others may follow.
  • Time of Day: As deer are most active at dawn and dusk, they typically are seen roadside during the early morning and late evening—the same times most people are commuting to and from work.
  • Time of Year: While deer-car collisions can occur any time of year, the fall breeding season is a peak time for such accidents. Road shoulders generally provide green food both during extremely dry times of the year and following a long, hard winter.
  • Minimize Damage: If it is too late to avoid a collision, drivers are advised to slow down as much as possible to minimize the damage—resist the urge to swerve to avoid the deer, this may cause further damage, sending drivers off the road or causing a collision with another vehicle. If an accident occurs, alert the police as soon as possible.
