People tend to check in during these times:
The Mann Center for the Performing Arts, located in Philadelphia's beautiful Fairmount Park, continues its rich tradition as the Greater Philadelphia Region's premiere outdoor cultural arts center.
During lots of Orchestra events, you can BYOB and BYO picnic.
Formerly known as the Mann Music Center, now the Mann Center for Performing Arts; summer home of the Philadelphia Orchestra; nice out-door concert venue including inexpensive lawn seats.
Wear mirrored sunglasses, so you can check out all the hot bearded men.
It can get hot here in the summer, dress lightly and bring water!
Great music venue. Come with very low standards for beer though. It seems they don't know there are other beers besides PBR, Bud, and Miller Lite. On the upside it saved me a lot of calories & money.
Phish phreaking rocked it...what a great venue!
Nice place- was here for sister's graduation, but complete BS that ya pay $15 for parking in the grass! Especially the graduates!
I can't believe they have the audacity to charge $15 for parking. This is not center city, the stadium, or the airport.
Don't forget a blanket for the lawn. Oh wait, you're already here!
enjoy some wine, cheese, crusty bread, and the great music of the Philadelphia orchestra
I love picnics at The Mann!
perfect night - went by too fast! staff was more than pleasant and helpful. facilities were clean. orchestra was PHENOMENAL. (Zelda Symphony!) $15 parking is a bit much, but eh. really great place!:D
Bonus: if a show isn't sold out talk to an usher and they may be able to upgrade you to orchestra seats for free!
Get and good seat and enjoy!
Philadelphia's BEST outdoor cultural arts center! Fun and affordable events happening all summer! Check out 6abc.com or manncenter.org for the list of events.
Wolfgang Puck delivers seasonal inspired selections at Crescendo, so frequent this spot often and on an empty stomach.
the best place to watch a show and also the philadelphia orchestra!!
Use the local bus. It was easy to get in and out of the concert and with just $4 round trip it's a great deal!
Rocked out to Furthur!
The Mann is the greatest outdoor venue in the Philly area. Classic venue. Not as sterile as the joint in Camden. Whole lotta love here.
Needs a lil upgrading..and more organized staff
Very nice place!
Saw both Death Cab and Ben Folds Five here. Awesome sound, views of the stage, and set uo
Love sitting in the grass.
If the Farm Truck is there (at the top of the hill next to the craft beer), you need to check out the Jerk Chicken Sandwich. So perfect.
Best amphitheater in the tri-state area. Food trucks are a great addition.
Very nice venue
Park for free at the shopping center on 52nd st. (McDonald's, planet fitness, shop rite). instead of paying $15 to park at the Mann. Also hell of a lot easier to get out.
The Mann is worth the trip from anywhere!!
Balcony seating for the Carnival of Madness wasn't the best. We would have been happier with first floor seating. Live and learn. Awesome music venue!
Nice outdoor venue, but expensive parking ($15!), no non-smoking section since it's outside, and at an all ages show with several bars & little security where's the regulation of underage drinking?
Make sure you bring a jacket if it is going to be cold. The walls of the theater are open sometimes
Lots of people are willing to pay the outrageous parking, so get there early if you're paying to park so you can get close to the gate.
Pay for the cheap seats, the ushers don't check tickets when you sit. As long as you aren't in anyone's seats, no one gives a shit.
Do the Lincoln demo. It takes 5 min and is pretty cool
Holy sh!t I think it will take just as much time to leave as the concert itself. Also. Verizon 3G doesn't seem to be holding up well. Friend's 4G seemed to be better.
See the Philadelphia Orchestra at their summer home.
Why did bands ever stop playing this place? Greatest place to see a show in the Philly area. Glad to see it making a comeback.
Don't sit in the upper seats way too hot.
Are there defibrillators at the Mann Center???

$15 for parking??? Vote no with your wallet...park on Columbia at 52th for free. Its the same distance
