Their latest charitable venture has been the construction of the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater. Located in the heart of West Des Moines’s City/School Campus, the Jamie Hurd Amphitheater hosts concerts, outdoor movies, festivals, and theatrical performances. The pet-friendly amphitheater can accommodate up to 50 musicians onstage and has lawn seating for up to 2,000 people.
Jamie Hurd, the inspiration behind the amphitheater, was the daughter of Richard and Linda Hurd. Jamie was an art and music lover and accomplished guitar player. She passed away in 2009 from cancer. This amphitheater is a special way to honor Jamie and provide a space to spread her passion for the arts for generations to come.
