FREQUENTLY  ASKED  QUESTIONS

WHAT TIME DO DOORS OPEN?

5:30pm on FRI, AUG 19  |  3:00pm on SAT, AUG 20

WHAT IS THE VENUE LIKE?

We think RiversEdge Amphitheater is one of the best venues to watch a show in the greater Cincinnati area. It is a grass amphitheater bowl. There are no permanent/fixed seats in the entire venue. It's large enough to host rock concerts, but no so big that you'll have to watch the entire show on a video screen from a mile away. There's really not a bad vantage point in the entire venue and all of our staff members are volunteers and ambassadors for the City of Hamilton...they're helping out with this event because they want to be here, they love live music and they love the City of Hamilton. They will be happy to help you with any questions you may have while you're here.

WILL THERE BE FOOD VENDORS?

Yes. Food vendors are located on the street immediately outside the amphitheater. This is why we allow re-entry to the venue with proper wristband identification. 

WHAT IS THE REFUND POLICY?

Refunds will be issued up to seven (7) days before the event begins. Other refund requests addressed on a case-by-case basis. In the event of a rainout, refunds will be issued, but may take an extended period of time due to insurance-related issues.

ARE THERE BEVERAGES ON-SITE?

Yes. There will be a variety of beer, liquor, mixed drinks, soda, and bottled water. Bottled water costs $1. Prices vary on other beverages.

WHAT IS DORA?

STRINGDUSTERS CANOPY.jpeg

DORA is Hamilton's Designated Outdoor Refreshment Area. This is a special district that permits open containers outdoors / outside of bars and restaurants. You can go to one of the local establishments and purchase a to-go drink and walk around town (within the posted boundaries). All outdoor beverages must be in the approved DORA cup, which you can purchase from participating establishments.  We encourage you to take a walk around town, but DORA CUPS/DRINKS ARE NOT PERMITTED INSIDE RIVERSEDGE AMPHITHEATER.  If you try to enter the amphitheater with a DORA drink, our staff will ask you to finish it prior to entering or dump it out / throw it away.

CAN I SET UP A TENT AND SELL MERCHANDISE?

NO. The only merchandise permitted to be sold at the event is festival-related merchandise and band merchandise. There are numerous small businesses in Hamilton. We encourage you to support our local merchants during your time in Hamilton.

IS RIVERSEDGE AMPHITHEATER ADA ACCESSIBLE?

YES. There is a flat concrete path surrounding the top of the amphitheater bowl. There are no stairs to traverse upon entry. There is also a flat concrete area at the top of the amphitheater bowl for wheelchair accessible viewing. The amphitheater bowl is grass and has a very gradual slope, which may be suitable for wheelchair access depending on individual circumstances. The stageside VIP DECK is also wheelchair accessible with no steps to traverse. The stagefront VIP viewing area will require special accommodations for wheelchair access, please contact us for additional details.

CAN I BRING A LAWN CHAIR?

Yes, as space permits. Please be advised that if/when the amphitheater reaches capacity, there may not be space available for lawn chairs...especially as the event moves later into the evening. If/When the amphitheater becomes more crowded, we recommend moving lawn chairs towards the top of the amphitheater bowl as the area nearest to the stage will likely be filled with people who are standing making it difficult for seated viewing.  Please be considerate, we want everyone to have a good time, but this is a rock concert, so expect people to stand and dance. As a reminder, we do allow re-entry to the venue, so you can always take your lawn chair to the car...there are 30 minutes between each of the band performances.

WHERE CAN I STAY? WHAT HOTELS ARE AVAILABLE?

Google is your best friend. Currently, there are two hotels in Hamilton. Both hotels are within walking distance of the venue (Marriott is next door).  There are also AirBnB & VRBO options in Hamilton.
