Amphitheater & Water Park

The Devon G. Buffett Lakeshore Amphitheater

The newest addition to Nelson Park, an amazing amphitheater overlooking Lake Decatur provides a one-of-a-kind lakefront setting for live outdoor concerts, arts performances, road races, festivals, and other special events. The state-of-the-art facility draws visitors from across Central Illinois, accommodating 3,200  guests in the fixed seating, pit, terrace and lawn areas. The venue  includes a stage with specialized lighting and acoustics, concession building with restrooms, and changing room for performers. Rentable “party decks” provide a more private listening experience for businesses or groups of friends.

The amphitheater opened for its first season on May 24th, 2019. This exciting new venue is made possible thanks to a generous contribution from the Howard G. Buffett Foundation.
