I love this venue! This was my second concert here, I saw Lyle Lovett earlier in the summer. Both events were spectacular. I thought the management of the grounds, the crowd, and the rules were enforced from where I was. The only recommendation that I can make to future concert goers is to get to the venue early. If you get there aroun 3-4pm for a 7pm show, you can have a little picnic on the lawn (in a semi-formed line) and then when the gates open lay your blanket on the lawn with your lowback chairs to stake your claim on the lawn. (I prefer the lawn to the reserved seating chairs because you can stretch out a little more). Once you get your blanket out, you can get your hand stamped and head over to the Redhook Brewery across the street and grab dinner there or get it boxed up to go. Once you're back on the lawn the shows that I've been to have started on time at 7pm. At the Lyle Lovett concert the sun set just as hot air balloons floated above. At one point, the Washington Dinner Train chugged along behind the venue. I can't think of a better place to see a show. You should take a rolling cooler, a picnic blanket, low chairs, and maybe a small folding table. Enjoy!!
Pros: Beautiful Setting, Ambience, Parking is Free
