We've been here several times for the M# Rock Festival and its always been a great place to watch and listen to the concerts. Prices are reasonable as well.

I had not been to this venue in almost two decades. I was surprised how much better the parking was - going in and out.Entering the venue was reasonably fast. The seats and the sound were great.You can also bring food and water.

The venue is a pretty generic outdoor amphitheater. The only reason I do not rate it higher is because the prices are high and it is very hard to get to on a week night.

Great seating on the lawn and in the seats. Such a quaint venue in a beautiful location. Tons of HoCo police maintaining a strong deterrence. Food options were plentiful as were restroom locations. They were clean and cool. We will be back here again!

The unique upstairs lawn space is worth checking out, but really you can’t see much unless you get a spot along the rail.
