The Specialized Seating Choices
You will find general seating available on the spacious lawn located just behind the area available for reserved seating. This is roughly 100 feet from the main stage. You can choose where you want to sit and bring blankets or lawn chairs for most events to ensure your comfort and enjoyment. The general admission seating does vary slightly for some of the vents including Movies by Moonlight and the NC Symphony Summerfest series. In most cases, you will find seating beginning by the stage and continuing until you reach the rear of the lawn. You can even rent lawn chairs if you do not want to bring your own.
The majority of the concerts hosted by the Koka Booth Amphitheater offer 1,000 reserved seats available directly in front of the main stage. There is not a roof above this seating, you must present a ticket to enter and the seats are usually comprised of folding chairs. The Crescent deck provides elevated seating just behind the lawn. This seating is covered and provides a wait service for numerous different events. The venue additionally provides both tables and chairs for everyone with a ticket to sit in this section. Some events are so well attended, an area at the front of the stage is set aside for standing room only. This area is considered general seating, does not provide a roof, umbrellas, blankets or lawn chairs and ensures the festivities are available to more people.
The Koka Booth Amphitheater is an exceptional destination for festivals, concerts, a night out with family or friends and an excellent opportunity to make wonderful memories. After visiting the Amphitheater, jump on down to the Chatham Hill Winery.
