More Information


All Kroger Symphony on the Prairie concerts begin at 8 PM unless otherwise noted. Gates open at 6 PM. Gates open early at 4:30 PM on July 2, 3 & 4 and 5 PM on Sunday, August 30. All programming and artists are subject to change.


Concert cancellations due to weather are reported via the ISO's weather hotline at 317-758-SOTP, Facebook page and Twitter feed. "Like" the ISO on Facebook and follow @Indy_Symphony on Twitter for up-to-date concert information. 


Bring your rain gear! The ISO and its guest artists make every attempt to perform, even in rainy weather. In the event of severe weather that might cancel a concert, we will invite you back. Rain checks will be distributed and will admit ticketholders for lawn seating to any remaining Symphony on the Prairie concert. Replacement table seating is arranged through the Hilbert Circle Theatre Box Office and is subject to availability. Valid rain checks will be confirmed the day after the cancellation on our website.


Accessible parking is available with golf cart transporation to and from the gates. For more information, please contact the Hilbert Cirlce Theatre Box Office at 317.639.4300.


For larger groups requiring a private area, call Conner Prairie to rent one of three picnic pavilions. The sales and catering team will help secure the right pavilion for your group size and coordinate meal and beverage servicing. Contact Conner Prairie at 317.214.4495 for details. Pavilion rentals require catering from Conner Prairie.

What Should I bring?

Here are some recommendations from fans:

  • Bring a wagon or a rolling cooler. If neither is available, the Boy Scouts have wagons to help you move things from your car.
  • Picnic-style foods are the best kind! Some suggestions are: wine, cheese, crackers, baguettes, frozen grapes, croissants, etc.
  • Bring a vinyl tablecloth to place under the blanket you're sitting on to eliminate dampness. It can also double as a cover for any unexpected rain.
  • Have trash bags ready for when you've finished eating, and bring a flashlight in case it's too dark to check the area where you're sitting.


We do not allow pets, grills, large tables, large umbrellas, tents, firearms, fireworks, tiki torches or sparklers.


Tickets purchased for any Symphony on the Prairie concert that have been lost or forgotten at home can not be reprinted on site at the Conner Prairie Box Office. New tickets will need to be purchased to allow entry into the amphitheater.
