Food & Drink
The Cuthbert Amphitheater has many food and drink options available for patrons. At any given show, about 5-6 food vendors are open for business on our main concourse. Due to the vendor's busy summer schedules, food options may rotate from show to show.
Here are some of the vendors who will be at the 2015 Cuthbert Summer Series:
Patrons are also permitted to bring in their own food. However, we ask that this stay compact to help expedite bag check and entry lines. Patrons are permitted to bring outside food into the venue in clear, easily viewable, one-gallon Ziploc-style bags only—one bag per patron. Outside beverages are prohibited, but empty plastic water bottles are permitted. There will be additional water bottle re-fill stations available near the main entry.
