Festivals and farmers markets on the lively green in front of The Brandon Inn

From there, visitors may browse a variety of small, independent shops, grab a bite to eat at one of the many dining options, or sample local craft beers and wines. Two downtown parks offer dramatic waterfall views and all provide great locations for relaxation and people-watching.

Year-round events in Brandon ensure that everyone is entertained, from farmers markets to harvest festivals, and parades to concerts. The town’s weekly summer concert series even happens in the new bandstand behind The Brandon Inn!
