About the Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater

The Devon G. Buffett Amphitheater is owned and operated by the Decatur Park District and was made possible by a generous donation from the Howard G. Buffett Foundation. The venue’s name is in honor of Howard G. Buffett’s wife, Devon, and is referred to as the Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater. Construction began in 2018, and the venue is scheduled to open on May 24, 2019.

The venue sits along the shore of Lake Decatur as part of Lakeshore Landing nestled inside the Historic Nelson Park. With a capacity of nearly 4,000, the venue offers views of the lake from nearly every seat or viewing area. The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater’s first season will operate May through September of 2019—offering a wide range of entertainment. The goal is to offer something for everyone with a line-up that will feature music of many genres, comedians, big bands, movie nights, family themed entertainment and more.
