The Mann just keeps getting better and better. Wonderful stages - they added a few smaller ones at the top of the hill. Great quick cheap eats and full buffet restaurant with yummy food. Comfy seats. Wonderful lawn seating. The acts get better and better. Movies, rock concerts, classical music. I've been at least 10-15 times with girlfriends, my husband,... More

I was here for a Phillip Phillips concert with Matt Nathanson and A Great Big World. It is a beautiful venue with good sound. I took a taxi to the show so I don't know how the parking is but the venue seemed easy to get to. The staff was friendly and helpful.

What a beautiful venue! Really enjoyed the views of Philly from here. Enjoyed a great meal at Crescendos with an amazing city view before the Paul Simon concert.

An awesome performance by one of the greatest entertainers. Down to earth, connecting to the audience and singing her heart out. She sang blues, country, rock a billy and gospel like nobody else could. "I can't make you love me" just gets to down deep in the heart and soul. "Angel from Montgomery " was another gut renching dispaire song... More

In celebration of the Mann's 40th anniversary (having begun as The Robin Hood Dell), audience members were treated to a fantastic concert of diversity and creativity. With multiple seating levels and price options, the evening was affordable and fun. If you purchase tickets online, be prepared for an additional $10 fee per ticket, which can be reduced to free or... More

As my title suggests, my husband and I went to go watch the Philadelphia Orchestra play alongside the first Harry Potter movie. AMAZING!!! it was during the summer series so you can bring in food and drinks. We purchased lawn tickets so we brought folding chairs which worked out quite nicely. Unfortunately it rained on us so we did have... More

I traveled from Albany, NY to see Dylan and Mavis Staples here. The place is beautiful and well organized. When the concert started, the sound was muffled, then echoing, and very small amounts of crowd noise overrode the stage music. At first I thought it was the age of our awesome performers compromising their voices. But I had many friends... More

This is a great venue. There are two pavilion levels and large screens to view from the lawn. The stage is not really visible from the lawn. Plenty of good food available and helpful staff.
