by 321 Happy Hour

The Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park on Merritt Island is an exciting outdoor event complex that promises to be a hub of entertainment and cultural activities. With its impressive seating capacity of 5,000, state-of-the-art facilities, and beautiful surroundings, this amphitheatre is set to become a premier destination for both performers and spectators. In this blog post, we’ll explore the history, features, and future enhancements of the Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park.

The Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park was made possible through a collaborative effort between the Brevard County Parks and Recreation Department, MIRA (Merritt Island Redevelopment Agency), and the State of Florida Communities Trust. In the late 2000s, the park received an $800,000 grant from the State of Florida Communities Trust for Veterans Memorial Park Improvements, and MIRA contributed $400,000 towards the expansion. Recently, MIRA secured a $1.3 million grant from the Brevard County Tourism Development Council, matched by a $1 million investment from MIRA, to bring the Amphitheatre project to fruition.


The Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park boasts top-of-the-line facilities designed to provide a seamless experience for performers and attendees alike. The amphitheatre features a spacious performance stage, complete with stage lighting and digital performance level sound capabilities. Additionally, there’s a well-equipped greenroom for performers, vendor docking, and storage facilities to accommodate various event requirements. The concession facilities and picnic seating ensure that visitors can enjoy refreshments while taking in the performances. Ample parking and well-designed walkways make accessing the venue hassle-free.


One of the remarkable aspects of the Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park is its setting within a well-designed park. The beautiful surroundings enhance the overall experience for spectators and vendors. The park offers a tranquil environment with lush green spaces and well-maintained landscaping, creating an inviting atmosphere for attendees to relax and enjoy events.


MIRA is committed to continually enhancing the Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park. With over $2.4 million dollars already invested in funding for infrastructure improvements, exciting developments are on the horizon. The enhancements are currently in the final design stages, followed by permitting review, bidding, and construction. The expected completion date for these enhancements is early to mid-2024. These enhancements will further elevate the venue’s capabilities, making it an even more appealing destination for performers, vendors, and audiences.


The Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park is a testament to the power of collaboration and community-driven initiatives. This outdoor event complex promises to be a prominent cultural hub, attracting renowned performers and enthusiastic audiences. With its state-of-the-art facilities, stunning park surroundings, and future enhancements, the Amphitheatre at Veterans Memorial Park is poised to provide unforgettable entertainment experiences for years to come. Stay tuned for the completion of the upcoming enhancements and be ready to witness the magic unfold at this remarkable venue.
