More Information


Unlike many other outdoor theater venues, there are seats, but they are not padded. Some people bring a cushion or blanket to sit on. We strongly suggest that you bring a flashlight for after the show, as it is a park setting without street lights.

Coffee, hot chocolate, soft drinks, hot dogs, candy, popcorn, and cookies, and more are available for purchase.

You may also bring your own refreshments. There is no restriction on bringing food or beverages into the amphitheater.

The area can get chilly at night, so jackets and blankets are recommended.

Picnic tables are available throughout the park on a first-come, first-served basis, or groups can reserve picnic areas through the Oakland Parks & Recreation Department.
