We came from out of state recently for a concert. Parking was easy to get in and out of and plentiful. Once inside the price of drinks and food was just absurd. $6 for a small Gatorade $14 for a plastic cup full of frozen...More

Lawn area and pavilion are both great options, they have a pretty good calendar each year, the beer could be cheaper but it's expensive anywhere

Good setting and venue for an outdoor concert. General lawn seating provides ample opportunity for great seats at a decent price. Show up early for a bit of tailgating...watch bring the kids due to the chances of recreational smoking going on.

This place has been a favorite for years, but has always been a little 'worn out' concerning the concessions and toilet rooms, but over the past 2 years, there has been great improvement. New restrooms and concessions, along with a rebuilt (and much taller) stagehouse...More

Saw O.A.R in August and didn't expect to eat or drink but the variety was so amazing just couldn't help myself...so many vendors with unusual choices. The grounds are well kept and the Concert was unbelievable.
