Great open air / outdoor venue for any concert. Safe, plenty of parking, good choice of food and drinks. Comfortable seats under the roof and good sound system.

concerts are way over priced - to the point of gouging --acoustics are only fair - parking is poor and getting out after concert is .............

Easy to get to - just minutes from downtown Canandaigua. Plenty of parking with easy access and exit. Acoustics are excellent and seating is comfortable. Based on our first concert there (Earth, Wind, and Fire), we will definitely want to be on the mailing list...More

We had shell seats for Brett Eldrich. There is a lot of leg room. I usually get grass seats. Great sound.

It was great. My mom's first time there. The shuttle from the parking lot for those who needed it was most helpful.

We saw Alan Jackson in concert. The parking was ample and cheap ($10), the lawn seats were good and the price for the drinks was reasonable (although always pricey). The facility is really pretty and the acoustics great. A wonderful night.

David Byrne then beach boys. Two days of great live music. The staff and the facilities were great. Bathroom lines were even reasonable :-) the best deal was the small box of wine!

Recently attended the concert of a well-known alternative music artist at CMAC. Overall I remain unimpressed with the venue. If you are not interested in seeing the performance, and prefer laying under the stars to listen from the general seating, this is a perfect venue....More

Great question; If it says lawn, then you need to bring chairs. I think the numbers are like general coordinates. There is nothing on the lawn that has seats. Hope this helps! It’s a great concert venue!
