North Augusta Hippodrome to become multi-purpose venue

NORTH AUGUSTA, S.C. (WJBF) – A popular horse competition facility will be transformed into the CSRA’s newest concert venue.

The North Augusta Hippodrome will be redeveloped into a multi-purpose events facility, featuring a 52,000 square foot covered arena.

The music and festival venue can be used for large-scale events, the first one being the Border Bash on November 3, 2017.

“With the recent announcement that the James Brown Arena is going to be moved to South Augusta, we feel very strongly that Downtown Augusta and North Augusta deserves to have a top notch events venue.” Brian Graham, Morris Communication Corporate Director for Events said.

The arena will be rebranded as the CitySpin Arena.

The lineup for Border Bash includes Eve 6, Ashley McBryde and Black Dawg.
