About this Place
Perhaps the City's most unique facility, the Riverside Festival Stage, is located in lower City Park. It is a 470-seat outdoor theatre, which is modeled after the famous Globe Theatre in London. The facility was the brainchild of Riverside Theatre, ultimately endorsed by both the Parks and Recreation Commission and the City Council.
The Riverside Festival Stage is a "Shakespearean-style" outdoor theatre facility, complete with stage, two dressing rooms, and concession stand. The festival stage plays host to the annual Shakespeare Festival, coordinated by the Riverside Theatre, and is available to rent for any appropriate purpose, from weddings to concerts. The rental fee is $25/hour for the stage area only; $75/hour for the stage and dressing rooms; or $100/hour for the stage, dressing rooms and concession stand.
