Ned Smith Center Amphitheater

New and Abbreviated Summer Schedule

Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Ned Smith Center’s summer schedule of events had to be altered. The Center tried their best to keep as many events and camps as possible while also following the state and federal rules while also keeping with the CDC’s guidelines on social distancing.

Please note that there will only be 200 tickets sold for each concert so make sure to get your tickets now! Also, due to the ever changing nature of the Covid-19 Pandemic, the Ned Smith Center reserves the right to alter or cancel any of the events listed if the government implements different rules. We will continue to follow all CDC guidelines and will plan on enforcing them to keep everyone safe and healthy.

The DeSoto Amphitheater for the Performing Arts is an expression of the Ned Smith Center’s mission to merge the worlds of nature and the arts. At the DeSoto Amphitheater, the arts have a home surrounded by the tranquil beauty of the Ned Smith Center lands.

Doors open at 6 p.m., performances begin at 7 p.m., unless otherwise noted. Tickets for most shows are $15 per person unless otherwise noted.

Please bring your favorite outdoor seating. We also allow picnics and BYOB. Our friends at Max’s Grille and Sports Bar will be selling food and drinks and Armstrong Valley Winery will be selling wine at most shows.
