The Mark Burkhalter Amphitheater provides a spacious venue for City-sponsored events, including our popular Summer Concert Series. Designed to utilize natural elements, the soaring structure features stacked stone and arches of southern pine. The 10,600 square-foot open-air amphitheater seats up to 400 under cover, and another 1,000 on the terraced grass lawn surrounding the venue.

The Amphitheater was engineered to accommodate a wide-range of musical genres from acoustic performances to symphony orchestras. While food and non-alcoholic drinks may be brought in, contracted vendors provide a variety of catered food and beverages for public events, including beer and wine. The Amphitheater is available for private events and corporate events.
