Chastain Park is one of the most popular neighborhoods in Buckhead, thanks to the multi-purpose 268-acre park it surrounds. Hidden out of view inside this park is one of the most unique concert venues in the country; the Chastain Park Amphitheatre. The amphitheatre opened in 1944, in the midst of World War II. Because of the war, there were no promotional efforts until 1973 when the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra began hosting their summer concerts at the park, which to this day, is still one of the top attractions in the city.

Since its establishment, the Chastain Park Amphitheatre hosts hundreds of thousands of visitors each summer. Through the years, A-list performers from Frank Sinatra, Ray Charles, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder – to more recently – John Legend, Selena Gomez, Lady Gaga and Idina Menzel, have graced the stage.

One of the special things about the Amphitheatre is the long tradition of picnicking. Audiences are always welcome to bring their own food and beverage – some shows even have tables in the audience, making for an exciting and cherished tradition of candlelit dinners with a concert backdrop.
