The Chastain Park Amphitheater
The Chastain Park Amphitheater is located in the 268 acre Chastain Park, the largest park in the City of Atlanta. The amphitheater is surrounded by the Chastain Park neighborhood which is located in the Buckhead area of Atlanta. The Chastain Park Amphitheater originally opened on June 20, 1944. The amphitheater was recently upgraded and renovated in 2004.
Under an agreement with the City, $1 from each ticket and $3 from each car parked in the nearby lots goes into a trust fund that is used to support the infrastructure upgrades and maintenance at the park. In addition, the venture pays a rental fee to the City that goes into the City’s general fund.
