Enhance Livability for Everyone

This much-improved venue will allow for exceptional performances and events to make Salem a more attractive, interesting place to visit and live, improving our capital city appeal for people of all ages. The amphitheater will attract a new and wider range of community activities to the park, including musical concerts, theatrical productions, public films, fairs, school events, family gatherings, weddings, dances, and class reunions.

Boost Economic Vitality

An enhanced amphitheater will enable top quality events, which in turn will regularly bring additional customers to Salem’s shops, hotels, restaurants, and cafes adding long-term stimulation to our economy.

Expand Future Possibilities

Thoughtfully scaled, well-equipped, and beautifully situated, the new amphitheater will open all kinds of possibilities for events that weren’t previously considered feasible. It will create new opportunities for Salem-Keizer schools, nonprofit organizations, performing arts groups and others to stage live performances for the community in what has become one of the most scenic urban parks in the Northwest.

Projected for completion in the spring of 2020, this will be a highly functional and aesthetically beautiful architectural design that invites people in, to participate and play in its space, and to enjoy a genuine sense of pride that the structure is an integral part of the Salem community.

“This state of the art venue will add a new dimension to Salem’s quality of life but also add to our economy. Being able to host entertainment with such a breathtaking background is sure to attract visitors to Salem and we are happy to help promote these activities. Salem is very fortunate to have such an active and dedicated group of Rotarians that contribute to the health of our community.”
