The City of Maple Valley Parks & Recreation Department prohibits the placement of small unattended tables, chairs or other items reserving spaces on the Amphitheater’s lawn PRIOR TO 3:00 PM on concert dates.

The following are prohibited by the City of Maple Valley: tents, portable generators, items that disrupt the concert, tape or any other material, or hanging or posting anything on trees, plants or buildings. Out of courtesy and respect for others, please do not place chairs or tables in areas that may obstruct someone’s view; low chairs and very small tables are encouraged.

Concerts are held rain or shine, unless there are severe weather warnings and/or the threat of lightning in the area.

Yes, unless the artist specifically asks the audience not to.

12.) Are there restrooms available?
Restrooms and hand-washing facilities are available at the Beach House.
