Since 2002, Central Oregonians have looked to the Les Schwab Amphitheater (LSA) for their riverfront event fun. The 8000-patron amphitheater, built in the Old Mill District in 2001, has seen over one million guests flock to the venue for free Sunday concerts, ticketed shows, and brewfests since its gates opened. Each spring, locals and out-of-towners alike await the announcement of its diverse event lineup, traditionally beginning Memorial Day weekend.
Named for local tire entrepreneur Les Schwab, the amphitheater features Schwab’s old schoolhouse, repurposed as its artist dressing rooms. Meanwhile, a former lumber mill management office sits behind the stage. And, the 360 degree views from the lawn include both the Deschutes River and Cascade Mountains.
The LSA has hosted some of the music industry’s top performers, and this year is no different. So, whether you’re looking to catch someone famous roll through town, or would just like to hang out with family and friends at a free show, head down to the Old Mill District’s Les Schwab Amphitheater.
