Great local venue

Great place for concerts. Love the small setting. Parking is easy. Only bad if it's hot or rainy. Kid friendly.

Had to wait over an hour to get a drink and missed 2 opening acts! Absolutely ridiculous! This place is going down hill fast

Fraze is the place for events and for concerts. Concerts have great acoustics and provides some spill over sound-wise to the surrounding area. Different events are set up on weekends that draw in crowds. But enough space that one has fun. Nice park setting when not in use for either of above.

First time to the Fraze Pavilion. We were in Orchestra B and while there is not a bad view in the house, there is also not a good seat in the house. The seats are very small and ridiculously tightly packed together. It makes a middle seat in coach on Delta Airlines seem roomy. There are a lot of better... More

Not in the mood for a long drawn out review so in short, we were told to leave during a concert due to heavy rain and thunderstorm and that they would contact us once the show was set to be continued. No one ever contacted us. We drove 3+ hours and spent $200 on a hotel and for what? I... More

The Fraze is an outdoor stage that showcases both local and the hotest stars. Many local events are free, such as Art in the Park, Fairmont High School Performing Band, th Air Force Band. Stars such as Kenny Rogers, the Beach Boys and other more popular groups. Check the website for a schedule.

Excessively authoritarian! No umbrellas. No backpacks. No shelter -- just get off our property so you are not our responsibility we don't care if it puts you at greater risk. No large purses. No strollers. No pets. No lockers to store them -- take them back to your car because we want to keep everyone safe. You didn't drive here?... More

We've been attending olives show here for years. We drive nearly 3 hours for the entertainment. The fact that we return repeated should illustrate our satisfaction. With max capacity at 4500, there's not a bad seat in the house. The plaza and fountain area add a charm that most out door venues lack. Parking is plentiful. Both on street and... More

We have attended many shows at Fraze Pavilion, but at a David Bowie tribute show, when we got to the entrance, they displayed a weird measuring contraption, and informed us that my wife's purse was too large to be allowed. We said we'd never had problems with this before, and we were told that they have just implemented this policy,... More

We saw a concert here recently. The drive to there from Columbus was only hour and half easy to find. The venue is beautiful lots of trees and pond. Plenty of food and drink areas and big restrooms. If you have lawn seats they have lawn cushions you can rent for $12 worth the cost they have back support too.... More
