James Brown Arena

Just like James Brown, Augusta embraces all kinds of music and entertainment. So it’s appropriate that the arena named in his honor boasts a year-round schedule of eclectic events and star-studded performances. The annual Augusta Cutting Horse Futurity brings world-class bull riding and cutting competitors to the arena. You can also catch everything from a Home & Garden Expo to hip hop concerts to comedians.


Located in the heart of downtown Augusta, the James Brown Arena offers a diverse schedule of entertainment - from comedians to concerts - year round.
