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
