All About the Venue
Despite the impressive size of the Ironstone Amphitheater, it provides an intimate and relaxed feel—something that’s rare with big-name concerts. Part of the reason why the venue’s atmosphere is so unique is its surroundings. Since it’s part of Ironstone Vineyards, the amphitheater is flanked by leafy green trees, colorful flowers, and paved pathways ideal for a stroll. When you attend a concert or event at the amphitheater, bring a towel or beach chair, grab a glass of delicious wine, and relax under the stars on the lawn as you enjoy a fantastic performance. Bask in the breeze and make memories with your friends or family.
