Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre History
Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre is the largest concert venue in the Denver area
and has been a huge draw since it first opened its doors in 1988. Since it is an outdoor venue its schedule typically runs
from May through September, leaving concert goers a little over four months to experience the wonder of taking in a concert
at this popular venue. The venue is owned by The Museum of Outdoor Arts and was originally an earth sculpture, meaning there
were no walls and it was made of only dirt and grass, before walls were added to make it into a performing arts venue. Fiddler's
Green is one of the most picturesque and unique venues in all of Colorado and well worth a visit.
Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre has become one of the most popular concert venues in the region and
regularly brings some of the biggest acts in the world to its stage. Musical acts like Stevie Wonder, John Mayer, Maroon 5,
John Legend, Counting Crows, Journey, and more have all performed at Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre. Festivals like the Anger
Management Tour, Amercia's Most Wanted Music Festival, Country Throwdown, KQKS Summer Jam, Rock the Bells, Up in Smoke, and
others have also taken place at the venue.
The capital and largest city in all of Colorado,
Denver offers a bevy of exciting things to do. If you like sports, Denver has you covered with professional franchises including
the NHL's Colorado Avalanche, the Denver Nuggets of the NBA, MLB's Colorado Rockies, and the Denver Broncos of the NFL. If
you are in Denver be sure not to miss a visit to the Denver Art Museum which not only houses incredible works of art but also
has the second largest performing arts center in the country in its newest wing. A stroll through LoDo will present plenty
of opportunities to get some food and drinks as well as take in some local culture.
Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre
Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre is capable of holding up to 18,000 guests and offers both reserved seating
and lawn seating. During most concerts you will have the option to spread out on the grass and find your own spot and the
venue even has lawn chairs available for rent during the concert, or you can choose to pay extra for reserved seats closer
to the stage. Either way you are in for a treat when you attend a concert at Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre.
original name of the venue was Fiddler's Green Amphitheatre but it was changed to Coors Amphitheatre in 1995, then changed
again to Comfort Dental Amphitheatre in 2010. After the naming rights of Comfort Dental ran out in 2013, The Museum of Outdoor
Arts restored the original name of the venue. The venue is connected to Samson Park which is also owned by The Museum of Outdoor
Arts and is well known for its sculptures including Alice in Wonderland sculptures and works by Lonnie Hanzon, Agnes Nyanhongo,
Patrick Dougherty, and Ken Bortolazzo.
