We love going to the Summer Pops, the show was amazing. We had lawn seats, and brought our picnic dinner.

I did not know that the "cirque" was going to be true circus acts. The emcee was ridiculously boring and annoying. Our seats were okay, the big screens over the stage helped with viewing. The music was wonderful.

More Information


Q: Can I bring my folding chair for lawn seating?

Folding chairs are allowed in the lawn sections; however, patrons with taller chairs will be directed to the back part of the sections, and those with “medium-rise” chairs and blankets to the front. This way, patrons with just blankets can generally have unobstructed views of the stage. Please note: the Symphony does not provide blankets or folding chairs for rental.

Q: If I’m sitting in the Bay-side Lawn section, is it OK for me or my kids to sit on the rocks?

No. The potential for a slip or injury on such slick, irregular surfaces is significant. Our House Staff will actively discourage any patrons from sitting on the Bay-side rocks.
