The Tussey Mountain Amphitheater provides an outdoor music experience like no other in Central PA. The mountain is unique with its beautiful sunsets overlooking Happy Valley and undeniably amazing acoustics created by the mountainous terrain of the ski slopes. The gentle slope of the amphitheater makes for great sight lines and maximum visibility no matter where you are in the venue. Located in Boalsburg, PA, mere minutes away from downtown State College, the Amphitheater is easy to get to and is along the CATA bus B route. We are also environmentally conscious with an extensive recycling program and efforts to cut down on concert waste. All we ask is that you participate and put your recycling in the proper bins located throughout the venue.
The Amphitheater is a fan favorite, as the community has voted it Gold (2013, 2014, 2015) and Silver (2016) medals in the "Best Place to See Live Music" category in State College Magazine!
