Devon 2020 Season Cancelled

After much deliberation, The Decatur Park District has canceled all events that are part of the 2020 Season at The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19 and crowd restrictions as set forth by our Governor’s Restore Illinois phased re-opening plan. Rentals of The Devon for events following phased guidelines will be considered on a case by case basis.

The Devon is currently working with the performers originally scheduled for 2020 to determine which events can be rescheduled for the 2021 season. For events that are not rescheduled for the 2021 season, refunds will be issued as described.

Season ticket holders and sponsors will have the choice to roll their tickets to the 2021 season, request a full refund, or donate any portion to the Decatur Parks Foundation to support arts programming.

“We want our guests to have the experience they expect when they come to The Devon. With the current restrictions, we don’t feel that we could offer that in the time remaining left in the summer,” stated Mike Wilcott, General Manager of The Devon.

During this time of new beginnings, The Devon is available for rentals keeping in mind the IDPH and CDC guidelines.

With our sights set on 2021, our board and staff look forward to welcoming you back to The Devon with a renewed sense of enthusiasm as the health and safety of our community is restored. The continued patience, understanding and support is appreciated as The Devon works to offer more outstanding experiences in 2021.

If you have any questions, please contact Mike Wilcott at amp@decparks.com or call 422-5911.

Our COVID-19 Update

To our valued guests:

At the Decatur Park District and Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater, the safety, health and wellbeing of our guests and employees are our top priority.

With the current restrictions placed on large events/crowds, we’ve been working to reschedule our original May and June shows for later dates this operating season at The Devon. We hope as things continue to evolve, some of these restrictions will be lifted or modified and we can safely host the events on our calendar.

The speed that our region moves through the phases of Governor Pritzker’s “Restore Illinois” plan will determine when it will be deemed safe to welcome you to The Devon. We continue to monitor developments relating to re-opening and will follow guidance from the CDC, IDPH and our Macon County Health Department. Decisions to cancel or postpone additional shows/events will be based on the information available as show dates approach.

If a show is cancelled, credit will be issued to the original account used to purchase tickets. If you have any questions, please email us at amp@decparks.com.

Thank you for your continued patience and support! We hope to be able to welcome you to The Devon again as soon as safely possible.

Sincerely,

The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater Team
