Unlike anywhere else in Nashville, the Woods Amphitheater at Fontanel is an outdoor music venue with a capacity for 4500 guests. Located on the Fontanel Mansion & Farm property that was once the family home of megastar and Country Music Hall of Fame(R) member and two-time CMA Entertainer of the Year Barbara Mandrell, the Woods Amphitheater is an added value to Middle Tennessee. Featuring state-of-the-art sound and a cozy wooded setting, the natural amphitheater space of the White's Creek valley will be the must-see (and must-hear) venue of the South. The Woods at Fontanel will also be available for corporate picnics and events. With The Inn at Fontanel, the Woods Amphitheater, Pritchard's Distillery the Pepsi Studio Gallery, Cafe Fontanella, Goo Goo Outpost, AdventureWorks Ziplines, The Trails and Metro Parks Greenway, it is easy to see why Fontanel is becoming one of Nashville's premier destinations.

I took my 10-year-old to see Shawn Mendes here in Aug 2016. The venue itself is really sweet. Super cozy, and at night, the twinkle lights on the far structure of the venue's border look beautiful. It's a perfect size for a "mid-range" concert. The...More

While I haven't tried an Uber ride to there, I don't see why that shouldn't be possible. Parking is on a wide open grassy area, which seems very conducive to tailgating, unless for some reason it isn't allowed. I don't... More
