Mayors Message September 2019

Mayor Steve MacDougall

Four years ago this month we announced the ground breaking of the Icehouse Amphitheater as the newest project under the Town’s Vision Plan.  We could not have imagined the great success this venue has had for the Town of Lexington!

The Icehouse Amphitheater has been in full operation for the past 3 years with 134 events and 83,282 people in attendance.  With such phenomenal turnouts we have added more public parking which is available anytime for public use.  The new parking lots are located on Church Street with easy access to the Icehouse Amphitheater, Palmetto Collegiate, and the Municipal Complex Conference Center located in Town Hall. 

This year we renamed our farmers market and moved it to the Icehouse Amphitheater.  “The Market at Icehouse” has brought more vendors and visitors than ever before.  We also recently announced our fall lineup for the Town’s free Fall Concert Series.  It has been important to us to keep the Fall and Spring Concert Series and other Town events open free to the public.  We want everyone to have the opportunity to enjoy this wonderful amenity located in the heart of Lexington.  (A list of our Fall Concert Series is included in this newsletter as well other great events coming this Fall.) 

The Icehouse Amphitheater has not only brought more people downtown, it has created an economic burst of energy in our community.  New restaurants have opened on Main Street, businesses have renovated old buildings, a hotel will soon open, walking tours have increased and Lexington School District One also hosts events along with many others.  Social media lights up on event days with citizens being more engaged with their community.  We have placed a new emphasis on the Town’s social media so everyone can stay informed about events by visiting, Facebook, Twitter or Instagram.

I hope you will plan to attend an event soon and enjoy this great entertainment venue.

I’ll see you there!
