This facility provides as fine a place for outdoor concerts as I have ever experienced. The sound is excellent. It has covered seat areas as well as grass and bench seats. It also has handicap accessible places. Around the perimeter it has spaces for refreshments, bathroom, and sales space available.

This was a very nice, small, outside venue. It was well maintained - a great place to hear top talent and still feel like an intimate venue. I enjoyed it very much!

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.

Attended a terrific free concert( Lukas Nelson and the Promise of Real) as part of the Vail Hot Summer Nights Free concerts at the Amphitheater. Lovely venue. 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
