Welcome! On behalf of the City, I would like to thank you for your interest in our community. Brandenburg is a small town of around 2,600 people, and we are continuing to grow all the time. Whether you are looking for a new community in which to reside or just visiting, we have a lot to offer.

One of our main attractions is our Ohio Riverfront Park and the various yearly activities which are held there, such as the Summer Concert Series, and the annual Christmas by the River Drive Thru. Brandenburg is proud to be the home of the award-winning Meade County Fair and "Christmas by the River Festival". We also offer picnic areas, an amphitheater, a walking trail, and soccer fields which are all free to the public.

Brandenburg is a community with both a lot of history and a lot of potential. We are constantly looking for new ways to bring in new business and industry, as well as tourist attractions. We offer a variety of local merchants, a spectacular school system, and a community of individuals who are like no other!

Be sure to check out all our City has to offer while browsing through our website. Thank you again for your interest in the City of Brandenburg and we hope to have you visit us soon.

Mayor of Brandenburg

Downtown Area

Located downtown you will have access to a boat ramp, picnic area, soccer field, two pavilions with grills, electric and water accessibility. We also have a playground for children, an amphitheater where there is occasional concerts and a beautiful gazebo.

You are within minutes from our local historical restaurants. The view of the Ohio River is breathtaking here with the Indiana shoreline and the Matthew E Welsh bridge in the background. The largest steamboat ever built, the grand American Queen, frequently visits the downtown area of Brandenburg.

Also, throughout the Summer we have "Movie in the Park" night. We will post the schedule for you to plan your night.
