Outdoor Facilities

Outdoor Amphitheatre & Concerts

The performance space and seating area for “OUTSIDE at the UI Research Park” are located just south of the Motorola building at the corner of First Street and St. Mary’s Road in Champaign. The land has been re-graded and planted to create a shaded, grassy seating space that can accommodate up to 1,500 people. The space is great for dancing, kids playing, listening to music, and enjoying wine and local Champaign delicacies.

All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. and are free. Free parking is available in research park lots (not on First Street). Spirits and locally grown, organic food are available at concession stands located at the northwest corner of the Caterpillar building.
