This was out first time here. We had lawn seats. We arrived went the gates opened and were able to get a great seat. We had no issues and will be returning next summer.

This is the best concert venues I have been to. Whether you purchase inside tickets or bring chairs and sit in the lawn you will enjoy the concert of ballet. There are big screens for the lawn. Drinks are outrageous .

A totally amazing experience. Walked from South Broadway through the park to the venue. Once seated the atmosphere was amazing. Kind of open air but under an accoustic ceiling so the sound was brilliant. Seats were padded and comfy and we had a great view...More

This is just one phenomenal place to catch a concert. They have close to the stage covered seating and then tons of room on the lawn. The beer is cold and the acoustics are perfect. No better place for a show.

Have been going to SPAC for years for various concerts. If you have lawn seats- highly recommend trying to get a spot closest to the ramps so people don't trample over you and your things. Some crowds can get quit rowdy and we have found...More

I'm not 100% sure but I think the acts hire their own vendors. So it all depends on who is playing there and who they choose to provide food/drinks. When I was there for the Phish shows in 2016, I didn't find the prices as... More

Depends how you define walking distance? If you want to walk more than a mile, then yes, you can probably walk to these hotels in about 1/2 hour or more; otherwise the Gideon Putnam is the only close option.

Parking prices seemed to depend on the show. The Dead and Company shows had pre pay parking available for $30.
