The property that houses the Snowden Grove Amphitheater in Southaven, Mississippi, was part of a much larger philanthropic act to the city from the Snowden family. The donation also included what is now Snowden Grove Park which houses 17 baseball fields and is the largest youth baseball complex in the United States, and the Snowden House, a previous home of the Snowden family that has been recently refurbished and serves as a special events center for the city. The combined property covers over 200 acres.
In a little under 18 months, this 7.1 acre site was transformed from flat grassland into a 27-foot high, 125,000 square foot fully-functioning amphitheater. Today, the Snowden Grove Amphitheater has 4,000 fixed seats in the lower part of the amphitheater bowl with additional capacity for up to 7,000 on an elevated, trimly kept lawn with a gentle slope of 7.5 degrees for optimal comfort and viewing.
The Snowden Grove Amphitheater comes with all the amenities you would expect from a world-class venue, including ample parking, indoor restroom facilities, a plaza area complete with park benches and concessions area to provide a relaxing park environment. Additionally, a permanent VIP structure on the South end of the amphitheater provides a sheltered hospitality area for sponsors and box seat holders, complete with complimentary food and beverage service and private restrooms.
