Why Sponsor?

It is proven that sponsorship creates brand loyalty, and the Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater provides a wide range of opportunities to meet the unique objectives you are looking to accomplish.

From a full season sponsorship covering a larger demographic range down to a specific event sponsorship for a very specific market, the Devon can accommodate.

At the Devon, you can introduce a product, entertain key clients, shape or re-focus public perception, move product at the retail level, market with couponing, sample your product, service to a target audience, utilize on-site signage, or capture names for a direct mail campaign—all the while differentiating your product in a unique way.

Our 4,000-seat outdoor amphitheater plans to present a wide variety of popular programs in its inaugural season of summer 2019. The atmosphere is unlike anything in a 100-mile radius and is an inviting and customer-friendly lakeshore environment. The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater is the place to get the attention of your audience.

Overview of The Devon

The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater is a 3,000+ seat outdoor amphitheater in Decatur, Illinois. It is owned and operated by the Decatur Park District and was made possible by a generous grant from The Howard G. Buffett Foundation. The Devon plans to present many events each summer—including ticketed performances, free community movies, and series offerings.
