This place is sweet. Go early to the summer Tuesday concerts and get a seat up to on the rocks if the weather is good. Free valet parking for you bikes is great.

We attended a Bud Light series concert here. Not a bad seat on the site. Great acoustics!!! There was alcohol served at the site and everyone just had a great time, no matter what your age.

Lots of comfortable seats that are under cover and plenty of lawn space - all with good site lines. They have full beverage service - including the ability to purchase a nice bottle... More

The rain could not keep us out and the music was really different and great to listen to. My husband and I couldn't decide if we liked watching Kyle cause we were in the front row or watching all of his followers. We think they are called "Reppy's" (Rednecks and Hippies). Beautiful location for a concert. But the Reppy's could... More

I've seen every type of music in this venue and every time I am blown away by the incredible environment and the fantastic sound quality. Do yourself a favor and see a show here but don't forget the blanket and food. The lawn is the perfect place to enjoy the mts while hearing a rocking show!

The Bravo music festival is a wonderful experience and lends new context to classical music. Often weather challenged, it is not for the faint of heart. However... If you can name that tune our hum or whistle at least 4 bars of various classics in one minute, then please plan to join, if ya can't or it is not for... More
