    Great place to go for a variety of concerts, plays, and other shows (mostly free) and you can BYOB to certain events! And of course you have the lovely Hermann Park to explore before or after the show

    Very nice venue, with nice restroom facilities (considering it's at a public park.) It is also nice that patrons are free to bring along food & drinks (just as long as there are no glass containers.)

    Arrive early to get a spot on the hill. Bring your beach chair, blanket, umbrella, mosquito OFF repellant & snacks and you're in for a great time.

    Pack your lawn chairs & cooler & prepare to have a relaxing good time here. Visitors sit on the hillside or take a seat under the polygon canopy to enjoy the weekly shows that run from spring to fall.

    Great place to catch events. Very social scene on the Hill. Free parking at the Rose Garden, but I love taking the Main St. Train! Oh, and BYO anything, just no glass containers.

    The original columns that flanked what was called Miller Memorial Theatre in 1923 now rest across Hotel Zaza and are part of the Mecom-Rockwell Colonnade Fountain.

    Bring a blanket, the sugar ants didn't hurt but were a little annoying. A frisbee is great for around sunset on the hill before the show.

    You have to get here early if you're not sitting on Hippie Hill! Great family entertainment and it's free.

    For nearly any live performance, get their at least 15-30 min early to get a good seat. If you're late during some performances, expect to sit on a slope or stand the whole time.
