Mesker Amphitheatre


[ hide ]

    Mesker Amphitheatre is an historic 8,500-seat amphitheater, located in Evansville,  Indiana, United States. It contains 5,500 chairback seats and 3,000 lawn seats and is located at Mesker Park, near the Mesker Park Zoo.

    It was built after the death of local philanthropist George Mesker, in 1936, who left $500,000, for park improvements and an additional $250,000, to provide music and entertainment.

    The venue was closed in 2012 due to its deteriorating condition. It has sat vacant since, with crates of seats that were removed from Roberts Municipal Stadium sitting on its stage and near its entrance. The amphitheatre’s future remains uncertain.
