Rental of Forts Folle Avoine's Outdoor Amphitheater
Forts Folle Avoine's Outdoor Amphitheater is just down the sidewalk from the Visitor Center and offers a 300 person capacity. Beautiful trees surround the Amphitheater and just the slightest murmur of Yellow River's timeless flow adds to the seemingly reverent ambiance. The Outdoor Amphitheater is a fantastic site for special events and is offered for rental at a very reasonable rate! During past seasons, weddings, dramatic presentations, musical events, church services and even a "polka mass" have been held at the Forts Folle Avoine's amphitheater!
