Tonight my boyfriend and I decided to go see spamalot. We didn't get there early enough to get seats in the areas around the stage, but managed to find a place on the grass on the side near some trees. This didn't keep us from enjoying a funny very well done musical. It really did make me escape from the... More

For an incredible Richmond evening during the summer Festival of Art you can't beat the concerts at Dogwood Dell. Quality entertainment, a beautiful venue and it's all free! You'll want to get there early for a performance to spread your blanket, set up your chairs and enjoy a picnic dinner that you brought or purchased there in the park. One... More

While parking can be a problem it is an excellent park that offers varied activities and events throughout the year. The annual play at the amphitheater is a something that can easily become an annual tradition! This year it was the Man of La Mancha and it was well acted and a fabulous overall production.

The fourth of July event I a good one and the music events can be top notch. In the past we've seen the Kings of Swing (KOS) and other really excellent bands and have had a great time. KOS gives the impression that it is all swing music, but they are an awesome band that plays all kinds of music.... More

sorta of a bad part of town to find parking but once you do get seated, it is a fun experience. Accoustics are good. Scary walking back to your car afterwards, though.

Dogwood Dell has a small amphitheater in which the city offers free concerts on weekends. There is also a dog park, play ground and walking trails. Dogwood Dell is located next to Byrd Park and Maymont Park.
