The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater

Nestled along the shore of Lake Decatur, The Devon is part of Lakeshore Landing inside Historic Nelson Park. With a capacity of nearly 4,000, the venue offers views of the lake from nearly every seat or viewing area.

The Devon G. Buffett Amphitheater is owned and operated by the Decatur Park District and was made possible by a generous donation from the Howard G. Buffett Foundation. The venue’s name is in honor of Howard G. Buffett’s wife, Devon, and is referred to as the Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater. The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater’s first season will operate through September of 2019—offering a wide range of entertainment. The goal is to offer something for everyone with a line-up that features music of many genres, comedians, big bands, movie nights, family themed entertainment and more.
