In the early 1980s, The Clays built what was then known as Clay’s Park Music Center, and began bringing in popular musical talent to play concerts here. This development paved the way for Clay’s Park to contract with large concert promoters over the next several decades such as The Alive Christian Music Festival and later The Country Fest, which to this day consistently brings in top-ticket names and thousands of concert-goers annually to our amphitheater stage.
