Rain or Stars, the show will go on. Whether it looks like rain (or not), we recommend you bring your umbrella, and light rain gear. Come prepared for any eventuality. As Mark Twain once said, “Water, taken in moderation, cannot hurt anybody”.
We have some complimentary rain ponchos, but we do recommend you bring umbrellas if the weather looks inclement. Keep in mind that this is outdoor seating, and that the audience portion is not covered; we encourage you to come prepared with a light jacket and rain gear in the event that the weather turns inclement and/or the temperature drops when the sun sets. We want you to be comfortable!
All of our concerts start at 8:00 PM unless otherwise noted on your ticket. The concert bowl will open at 7:00 PM so you can begin selecting your seats.
If you are attending a Cellar Dinner at Jackson-Triggs Winery or the Barbecue at Inniskillin Winery please note that dinner begins promptly at 5:30 PM.
As it is an outdoor venue, it is very casual, and comfort is the key. Keep in mind that this is outdoor seating, and that the audience portion is not covered; we encourage you to come prepared with a light jacket and rain gear in the event that the weather turns inclement and/or the temperature drops when the sun sets. We want you to be comfortable!
Yes, there is wheelchair and assisted seating available in our amphitheatre. If you require wheelchair seating - or have any other special seating needs - please call 905-468-4637 extension 2.
WE WILL PROVIDE CHAIRS. There is a reserved seating section for those who have pre-booked our Jackson-Triggs Cellar Dinner and our Wine Club members (please ensure you book your tickets with the name exactly how it appears on your Wine Club membership). We have some umbrellas for purchase and complimentary rain ponchos, but we do recommend you bring umbrellas if the weather looks inclement.
First of all, BE PREPARED to allow lots of extra travel time as performances are typically Saturdays, and often on long weekends when traffic is at its worst!
The "bowl" itself opens at 7:00 PM allowing for plenty of time to make your way into the theatre and be seated. We employ ushers to assist you with seating if necessary. Those arriving after the show begins may not be seated until there is a suitable "break" in the performance, as determined by the amphitheatre manager.
The Cellar Dinner begins with a wine and cheese reception at 5:30 PM in our traditional barrel cellar. There is also the Inniskillin Barbecue that begins at 5:30 PM on the Inniskillin Winery Piazza. These dinner experiences must be pre-booked at the time of ticket purchase.

Parents are reminded, however, that most live, professional theatre, unless specifically advertised as being for children or "for the whole family", is intended as adult entertainment and may not be enjoyed by, or be suitable for, children. Please be aware that if you do bring a young child and that child creates any disturbance, you may be asked to leave the amphitheatre.
Everyone in a live theatre audience, regardless of age, must have a ticket. This is the case even if the child sits in your lap.
No. Cameras, video cameras and any other sound or image-recording devices are all strictly forbidden in amphitheatres. If you bring one in and attempt to use it you may be asked to leave the amphitheatre.
We feel that our events are of high quality and excellent value for money. Ticket pricing is determined by the event and no, there is no variable pricing by concert at the amphitheatre.

Before and during the performance our concession under the marquee will be open.
