Cruzan Amphitheatre History
Since first opening its doors in West Palm Beach, Florida in 1996, the Cruzan Amphitheatre
has gone by several different names, but two things that remain constant are the amazing facilities at the venue and the stellar
talent that performs on its stage each and every year. One of the main attractions over the years has been the spectacular
views available at Cruzan Amphitheatre, which has West-facing seats that give the patrons an incredible view of the sunset.
Before settling on the name Cruzan Amphitheatre the venue was known as Coral Sky Amphitheatre, Mars Music Amphitheatre and
Sound Advice Amphitheater. In 2008 Cruzan Rum bought the naming rights to the venue.
