One of our favorite things about the warm summer days in the Shenandoah Valley is the many concerts and outdoor events. Perhaps none are more fun than the summer concert series at the popular Lime Kiln Amphitheater in Lexington. The Lime Kiln Amphitheater is one of the most unique concert venues east of the Mississippi, drawing in crowds from all over the region. The Theater attracts major acts and entertainment – including the popular Garrison Keillor this summer! – and is just a short drive from our romantic Bed and Breakfast in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley.
While we’d classify concerts at the Lime Kiln Theater as a “must-do” experience in the Shenandoah Valley, it’s just the start of what promises to be a fun summer of adventure when you spend it with us. From hiking and biking to wine tasting and antiquing, there are plenty of things to do in the Shenandoah Valley this summer – and our Bed and Breakfast is the perfect home base for all of it!
Our Bed and Breakfast in Virginia is located in the heart of the Shenandoah Valley, situated perfectly to give you easy access to the area’s top attractions. With many of the top wineries in northern Virginia an easy drive away, Shenandoah National Park to the north, and the Blue Ridge Parkway to the south, there’s no shortage of relaxing yet fun things to do while here. And, of course, there’s plenty of relaxation and downtime to be enjoyed at our top-rated Shenandoah Bed and Breakfast. Grab your tickets to the Lime Kiln Amphitheater and book your room at our Bed and Breakfast in Virginia today!
The Lime Kiln Amphitheater, which hosted its first outdoor performance in 1967, has long been a treasured performance venue in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. Back then, when Washington & Lee students hosted a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the Lime Kiln Amphitheater was still just an abandoned limestone quarry and kiln.
Today, the Lime Kiln Amphitheater is a beautiful venue that hosts a range of world-renowned folk, bluegrass, and Americana artists each summer. The summer concert season has been delighting guests in the Shenandoah Valley since 2014 – but it’s about so much more than the music. The concert experience at the Lime Kiln Amphitheater is impressive. Throughout the evening, you’ll be surrounded by natural stone walls and trees, with nothing but a starry sky above.
There are two stages at the Lime Kiln Amphitheater. The “Bowl” is the main stage, which can hold concerts for up to 675 attendees – and nearly every one of these seats has been sold out for at least the past seven seasons. We expect it to be no different in 2023! The seating in the Bowl combines bench-style seating and grassy sections suitable for your own chairs and blankets.
Part of the concert experience at the Lime Kiln Amphitheater is bringing food or enjoying the food onsite as a pre-concert experience. Hosted food trucks are on site, and the venue opens an hour before each performance. Local wineries and breweries also supply a great selection of local wine, beer, and cider.
The concert schedule for the 2023 season at the Lime Kiln Amphitheater was recently released and has already seen heavy demand for its ten fabulous nights of live music. However, limited tickets are still available, so if you want to experience this one-of-a-kind outdoor concert venue, now’s the perfect opportunity to secure your spot!
Enjoying a concert at the Lime Kiln Amphitheater is just one of the great things waiting for you in the Shenandoah Valley this summer.
