This is a great venue for a show. We have something similar in Philly but not quite like this. The surroundings are great and food and beer options where ideal. The second-tier seats definitely give you a better view.

Parking prices seemed to depend on the show. The Dead and Company shows had pre pay parking available for $30.

I just went there tonight and lawn seats were not designated. It was pretty much a free for all and from any area you could actually see the stage it was unbelievably packed. The hill is also on a pretty steep decline in... More

Hello, yes there is plenty of handicap parking. It is a little bit of a walk to get to the lawn area but there is plenty of space and trees for shade once you get there. Also the restrooms are not very far from the lawn... More
