Melissa Etheridge rocked Artpark
Aug 2021
My husband and I made the trip to Artpark to see Melissa Etheridge in concert. The drive from our hotel in Whitesville to Lewiston was about 30 miles.
Finding Artpark was easy, with signs pointing you in the right direction. The parking lot was a nice size, and the staff were helpful answering questions. Parking was $5 per car.
We enjoyed the outdoor venue, and were pleasantly surprised there were food options, and drink vendors. There were plenty of port-a-potties for the crowd, although we didn't use them.
Being from out-of-town, we aren't familiar with Artpark and the activities that take place here. We were happy that it's easy to find by car, and easy to get around once you're there.

Great hiking trail!
Jun 2021
We loved hiking at the Artpark. It is a beautiful easy trail that follows along the water with great views the entire way. It's a great place for an evening walk and awesome views of the Niagara River.

Clean friendly park. Fairy Festival is a MUST !!!
Jun 2021 • Family
We attended the Fairy Festival… ❤️❤️❤️❤️🧚‍♀️🧚🧚‍♂️ The ‘fairies’ there were amazing and never left character! We spent hours walking around and my daughter played. They have a percussion garden with bells and chimes and things to make music with. The park itself is very clean and we actually stayed and had a picnic after touring the fairy gardens. Beautiful day! Oh, and the staff is super sweet.

Great Place for a Hike
Oct 2020
The Lower River's Edge Trail is well maintained and fairly easy. The views on the river to your right and the hill of trees to the left are magnificent.!! I highly recommend walking this trail especially in the autumn.

Most people know Artpark for their Tuesday and Wednesday outdoor summer concerts which are wonderful, a ton of fun and provide a great view while listening to the music. Artpark has so much more to offer though with really nice hiking trails along the Niagara River Gorge with access to fishing spots and spectacular views. Artpark was built on the left over earth removed to build the Power Plant a few miles south creating an area with different levels and plenty of space. There's a brick walkway from the top tier to the bottom or you can use the wide concrete steps. Heading into Artpark at the upper level you pass a dog park and a nature preserve with walking paths at the top of the ridge leading to parking lots for the venue. The remains of the Art-El (a wooden structure that used to cascade from the top to the lower level) create a platform for wheelchair seating for the outside amphitheater concerts. During the concerts vendors are set up with food and drink available. There are reserved seats, lawn seats and VIP seating. There's also lower level parking areas, one is a painted parking lot (very cool) a reproduction of an art installation done in the 1970's. Art installations are ever changing and pop up all around the Artpark campus...in the woods (an area for storytelling and hiking) the lower level has picnic shelters, percussion interactive art, pods with connected wooden walkways, art murals, the gallery and entrance to the main amphitheater. There are many places to hear music during the summer from the outdoor amphitheater to the woods...always something going on. Children's theater classes take place in the park and Artpark has a fairy festival every year. Hiking, art activities, theater, music concerts...so much to do in an amazing setting. A beautiful place to spend the day.

This venue was really cool. I will definitely buy tickets for another event here. Also, the concert was reasonably priced. Great experience.

Most exciting entertainment for all
Aug 2019
walking the trails along the stunning Niagara Gorge, attending a concert at one of the large venues with major international acts at Artpark Amphitheater or Mainstage, or more intimate and often free events with chamber music, Jazz, World in the woods, or unique open air art and music festivals, interactive installations: Artpark has it all. The birthplace of Niagara Falls it now offers some of the most innovative and exciting entertainment.

Awesome venue
Jun 2019 • Family
I had recently injured my leg and was walking with a cane. The venue was incredibly accommodating, with closer parking and a shuttle service for people who couldn't walk down to the venue. Even brought me back to the car afterward. For an outdoor venue, the sound quality was great (Sammy Hagar and Night Ranger) and the seats were comfortable (not just cheap white plastic chairs). We really enjoyed the event, the park, the huge array of food choices at the venue, and the staff who were all really helpful and friendly.

Decent concert venue, amazing seeing Sarah McLaughlin!
Aug 2019 • Couples
Artpark hosts some great performers, bringing some true talent through WNY. I have had plenty of good experiences there. Inside seating is pretty comfortable, although for the price I feel like there could’ve been a big screen or two so we could see a little better. In comparison to other local venues, I feel that Artpark really lacks ample parking. This puts a lot of strain on the community, and then people get tickets left and right when desperate to park and get into the show. Also, they don’t have enough bathrooms. At the last show, with $87 tickets, I waited in a line of easily 50+ people at 6 Porto Potties between sets and arrived late to my seat. They’ve got to figure that system out, because the whole line was full of people complaining- and no one wanted to buy another drink (big money maker for the park) for fear they’d have to use the bathroom again!
