Can anyone comment on how shows are at Brewery Ommegang? Parking? Are there any seats, do you bring your own chairs or do you stand the whole show? Any other tips?

Shows at Ommegang are great. There's plenty of parking (which is free if memory serves). The show is on the lawn so no seats but you can bring your own or a blanket to sit on if you choose. There's a bunch of vendors for food and drink. You can also choose to get a camping pass for $15 if you'd prefer to stay the night (perhaps after enjoying a few brews) rather than drive after the show.

@ron: shows at Ommegang are great. Parking is easy, provided and corralled by the venue. No seats but you are free to bring your own, or a blanket. You can stand close to the stage, or pretty far if you'd like (here is a pic from the Pixies/TV on the Radio show). My advise though: dress warm, or bring extra sweaters, it can get chilly.


I saw the Avett Brothers last summer, it was my first time seeing a concert at Ommegang. If you have any interest in seeing the performance, be prepared to stand in the crowd, or have really good eyesight. If you want a more relaxed vibe, plenty of people bring chairs & blankets but hang further back.

Camping is cheap. It's a free-for-all when the open up the area, don't expect much space and just grab the first flat space you come to.

Thank you for the tips!! Cheers!

I've been to a few concerts at Ommegang and have had a blast each time. After our first concert we decided to camp off site (camping on site was a little too hectic for my taste). We found a great campground not too far away - Shadow Brook. Bout 15 minutes of o remember correctly. Have a blast!

Do something at a state park maybe? We had our anniversary at Thacher Park. There are a lot of logistics when you do it that way, but it's a beautiful view, there is a pavilion so you don't need a tent, and they have bathrooms so you don't need to rent potties.
