Would you rather bring a picnic to eat on the lawn? You may bring your own food and sealed bottled water. Other beverages can be purchased at the concession stands. Avoid packing anything in glass or metal containers.


Golf carts are available to transport patrons to and from the main parking lot and Main Gate by the Box Office. Ushers with wheelchairs are available to transport patrons to and from the Main Gate to their seat.
Riverbend Music Center's wheelchairs are for transportation use to and from seats. If you wish to sit in a wheelchair during the performance, bring your wheelchair with you to the concert.
Accessible seating for wheelchairs is available in the pavilion and next to the lawn; call the Box Office for details.


Lawn chairs are available FREE of charge for Pops concerts at Riverbend. Visit the rental kiosk just inside the Main Gate (available on a first come, first served basis.)
All chairs must be set up behind the designated chair line.
Pack a picnic! See Food & Drink for more info.
The lawn is an eco-friendly, all-weather synthetic grass surface.


Youth ages 17 and under are FREE on the lawn. (Thank you Toyota Motor Eng. & Mfg. North America, Inc.!)
All patrons sitting in the pavilion must have a ticket, regardless of age.
We do not recommend children 6 and under sit in the Pavilion for most Pops concerts. Enjoy the free tickets on the lawn instead!
Pavilion tickets for children are discounted for some concerts; call us for details!


Concerts are held rain or shine. Refunds are not issued due to rain, even for lawn seats. If it rains, lawn tickets can also be used for seating in the back of the pavilion. Ushers will assist you.
Blankets, rain jackets, ponchos, and small umbrellas are allowed. Large umbrellas are not allowed.
