We stood in line from 6:40 till 8:30 waiting to get into the venue. We HEARD the first 2 acts, but only got to SEE the 3rd act. They can't handle checking in a big crowd.

I've seen three or four concerts here and love it. Being along the river is special and the sound quality is great. Could use more bathrooms, but that's typical anywhere.

I've been here for two different concerts during the last three years. It's a fantastic outside place to see your show. Nice view of the river. There is a fair amount of regular seating and some lawn space also. My only concerns are that the...More

I always enjoy seeing concerts here. It's so nice being out of doors along the Penobscot. The people working there are very helpful and very friendly. They don't charge exorbitantly for water, soda, or beer. I wish they had real toilets, but at least there's...More
