View from our lawn seats

A beautiful HOT summer Saturday evening and we are sitting comfortably on the lawn behind the amphitheater of CMAC listening to an incredible performance by Steely Dan.

Charlie brings me a beer and a plate of Dinosaur BBQ.  We watch the sun set and the music continues with one great song after another.

Every summer there is an all-star line-up of great performers at CMAC. It’s the summer home of the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra, but also hosts the full range of performers from The Flaming Lips to Wiz Khalifa.

The Constellation Performing Arts Center (CMAC) is an outdoor concert venue just east of the City of Canandaigua, on the grounds of Finger Lakes Community College. In  2007 the amphitheater was rebuilt to seat 5,000 with a new lighting and sound system (the lawn can seat thousands more).

Located at Lincoln Hill Rd., Canandaigua, NY 14424. It’s easiest to park at a local shopping center and take the school bus to the gate, but you can pay for on-site parking as well. You can’t tailgate in the parking lot, nor can you bring a picnic, but you can choose from a variety of beer and wine, as well as several different types of food.
