What to expect at events

Guests arrive at the Starlight Theatre through the expansive Swope Park. A generous amount of parking is available — general parking is free for all, although you can choose to upgrade for additional benefits.

Once you’ve arrived, you can park and head towards the entrance. Gates typically open up to two hours before the show, although it varies. Security can take a while — teams check bags for prohibited items, and you can expect to undergo several checks before gaining entry.

Please remember that the Starlight Theatre is an outdoor venue. Shows go ahead in most elements, including the rain and cold, so packing for all eventualities is advised. As most shows occur throughout the summer, you’ll usually enjoy a warm, sunny experience — but it’s best to be safe. The venue will provide updates if it expects exceptional weather conditions.

After entering the venue, you’ll find a range of outlets, concessions, and pre-show performances. Local bands and theater groups perform on smaller stages, with plenty of open areas to relax before your show. When it’s time for the main event, you’ll experience the exceptional sound quality that guests love about the Starlight Theatre.
