CONCERT & VENUE FAQ’s

What time does the show start?

The opening band starts the show at 7:30 pm.  The headliner comes on at 8:30 pm.  Some shows do not have an opener, but usually include an intermission.   Potential rain may delay start of concert or a pause in the concert.  Check website for updates at www.WoodstockConcertSeries.com

Can we put our chairs out early?

Though we discourage it, the amphitheater is located in an open park. We are not responsible for anything left in the park either prior to, during, or after the show.   Access the amphitheater from the upper section of the park as the lower level parking area may be closed.  The chairs can be put out at any time, but please be aware that they may be moved and/or blocked for production and concession load in.  Plastic tarps are NOT allowed on the ground or staked into the ground.   Lawn chairs, beach chairs, bag chairs or cloth blankets are recommended.  Staff will remove any plastic on the ground, stakes, or roped off areas.

Why can’t you stop people from putting chairs out early?

Unfortunately, there is not an easy solution to this issue. The Northside Hospital Cherokee Amphitheater is located in The Park at City Center, which is an “Open Park” and is not a gated facility. The Woodstock Summer Concert Series is a Free event. We don’t have the available staff (or budget to hire additional staff or police officers) to monitor the facility around the clock to keep people from setting up their chairs early. Even if we picked up chairs that were set out early, we wouldn’t have the ability to dispose or store those chairs. If we picked a specific time during the day to “Open” the facility and allow people in to set out chairs, we would have major pedestrian traffic issues as 10,000 people attempt to enter the park at the same time. Not to mention the vehicle traffic around the area. Please remember, this is a free event meant to bring the community together for an evening of fun.

What about tables, chairs, tents, umbrellas or tarps?

Lawn chairs, beach chairs, bag chairs or cloth blankets are recommended.  We do not reserve areas or tables. Plastic tarps are NOT allowed on the ground or staked into the ground.  No high tables (over 2’), large patio umbrellas, or tents.  They will be removed.
