This was our first time here last Tuesday, the 20th of June, where we saw "Dead & Company" perform a spectacular show. The SPAC has these 3 huge sound feeders on each side of the stage, where they amplify & send the sound out to...More

Parking was great. Fast access into the venue. Took a picnic dinner on their picnic tables. Lots on"vendor" food and drink available. Staff was excellent. Show was packed and a great group of fans. Perfect evening/night out

SPAC is awesome. The venue seems to know what they are doing. There was a limited line to get in the parking lot, zero line to get in the venue, then almost no line to get out of the parking lot. Love this venue and...More

First off, I loved where we parked in the park area (got recommendation from someone). $10 parking and the parking area had easy, accessible clean bathrooms with NO wait. It was the best parking spot I have ever had for a concert. The venue itself...More

I love going to SPAC, even if its raining outside, its still fun to stand in the lawn and listen to the music. The food and drinks are a bit pricey, so I would eat beforehand. The parking is horrific no matter what time you...More

The only venue I've ever been to that has a service fee when you go to the actual venue to buy a ticket, and I've been to quite a few venues. Everything is extremely overpriced.

This place is gorgeous. It was a full house (sold out) for Mumford, but what a beautiful venue. We loved it.

We were here for a high school graduation. If you have older people, get a ride in one of the golf carts or cone in a wheelchair. Beware, the walkway is very steep to the seats in the auditorium. And no matter where you park,...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
I am disabled and have a large service dog. We would like to buy lawn tickets for one of the concerts at SPAC. Is there handicapped parking spots that would be fairly close to the lawn seating area. I can walk but not long distances. Also, is the lawn area roomy with trees for shade or very tightly packed? Also, where are restrooms? Would appreciate advice!

Hi, I will be visiting SPAC next week for the 1st time. We have lawn seats. I know Bethel Woods doesnt let you bring a blanket and has you rent a chair. Is this the same at SPAC?
