If you are on the eastern shore, your trip won't be complete without experiencing at least one fabulous night under the stars at the Freeman Stage, Bayside. The summer program is chock-full of the most seasoned and renowned popular artists known in American music, dance, concert stage, and theater; and tickets are very affordable. The atmosphere is nothing less than... More

Great way to spend a summer evening. Relax and enjoy the entertainment. Reasonable pricing. There is a food truck, alcoholic beverages available, and good view and sound from any seat. Casual. Volunteers are very kind and helpful for first time patrons. Check out the schedule and find your favorite entertainment for an enjoyable evening.

Great place! The Freeman stage was very nice and clean. We loved how they had a food truck area for everyone to try. We look forward to attending a lot more concerts.

Went to the Bruce Springsteen impersonator concert here recently, this was my first experience there. We enjoyed it very much and basically no seat is a bad seat. But keep in mind you do need to bring your chair. If you want drinks/snacks you also need to make sure you bring cash for this. The only thing that was a... More

You have to get your seat and sit down before things get good. Love seeing concerts here but the volunteers are usually rude and over bearing. They put their hands in purses [ungloved] make you open your chairs looking for miniatures as one Nazi guard told me and force you to sit in certain places. I have even seen them... More

Just saw Yo-yo Ma and the Silk Ensemble...a great show!! Have seen several various artists and have enjoyed them all. All seats are great. Only complaints: Drink prices are VERY steep. Parking is a breeze but exiting is crazy...need to work on that!!

This is a great little venue right in our backyard. Some really good shows are here. Check their website at: Freemanstage.org for a list of events. We have seen many shows at night, and one of the best things of the outside is that there are NO BUGS!! None, zip, nadda!! I don't know how they do it, but you... More

We have meant to go here many times but never made it. Finally this year we just went. It's a nice open air venue with plenty of amenities. There are no cameras allowed yet smart phones are which is an annoyance. It's bring your own chair and you take it out of your bag. There is NO food allowed in... More

I have attended events at Freeman Stage occasionally and the experience is always pleasant and it is wonderful to have such a place in lower Delaware but I have to say my last visit had some issues. First, it turns out that I did not purchase my tickets directly thru Freeman Stage as I had thought. When I googled Freeman... More
