Wells Fargo Amphitheater

The Amphitheater was constructed in 1999, and is the site of many campus events including fall convocation, as well as outdoor concerts and plays. A map of campus can be found under the campus virtual tour section.

Showtime for all events is 8:00 pm. Gates open at approximately 6:30-6:45 pm.

Seating

With the intimate size of the Wells Fargo Amphitheater and expansive surrounding lawn, there is hardly a bad seat in the house!

  • Amphitheater seating is a flatstone and grass area built into the natural slope of the rolling lawn which semi-circles the stage. Seating is enhanced with stadium seats and folding chairs. Seating placement is on a first-come, first-served basis.
     
  • Lawn seating is the grassy expanse directly behind and to the sides of amphitheater seating and allows for a variety of views. Although the seated line of site to the stage does diminish further back, the acoustics and ambiance remain excellent to make an evening of live music under the stars an enjoyable experience. Bring your lawnchair or blanket. 
     
  • Festival Table seating is limited, and is generally positioned on the concrete pad in front of the stage, with some flow-over on the side grassy wings or on the top view above the amphitheater. Tables are reserved seating marked with your party's name.

Ticket Gates on the grounds of the Wells Fargo Amphitheater may be color-coded to help ease the flow more efficiently into the different types of seating. When multiple gate entrances are posted, entering the through the gates indicated below can help you get to your seat quicker.
