Kicking off its 18th year, the First Farmers Performance Series
is committed to bringing diverse and engaging entertainment opportunities to Columbia State students and the surrounding region.

Past seasons have featured a wide variety of performances from across the country and around the world.  This year’s line-up brings together an incredible group of celebrated musicians, whose talents are unmatched.

First Farmers & Merchants Bank is returning for a 11th year as the title sponsor of the 2019-2020 Performance Series presented by Columbia State Community College. “First Farmers & Merchants Bank is a pillar of the southern Middle Tennessee community. We are fortunate to have their support,” said Dr. Janet F.
