Riverbend is the best place in the area for a concert. Music is loud, atmosphere is always pleasant with a great variety of drinks and food. However; prices are a bit high for those items.

We ordered the tickets months ago and didn't expect the weather to be so stinking hot. Great seats, great band, very tight seats and packed pavilion! When you put 4,000+ 98.6 degree bodies in 100+ degree pavilion you get baked. We felt sorry for the...More

Lawn seats are great if the weather permits. Several people bring beach style 9" high lawn chairs so it can block the view if you plan to sit on a blanket. Check Riverbend's website to verify the size of lawn chairs permitted. Most people stood...More

Perfect place to go to enjoy music and the outdoors. You can choose the comfort of seats or the freedom of the lawn where you find your own spot.

We were in town to see Chris Stapleton, and didn’t know what to expect from this venue as were from northeast Ohio. Pleasantly pleased with this place. They have a turf lawn which isn’t like anything I’ve seen at outdoor venues. Typically you have to...More

I had reserved seats and they were under the pavilion. You could walk around anywhere you wanted to. Honestly, I never saw a pit. Sorry.
