Amp Up with a Summer Amphitheater Pass at Pipestem State Park

PIPESTEM, W.Va. – The summer amphitheater season is about to get underway at Pipestem Resort State Park, and this year, for the first time, a season pass will be available for the whole series of events.

"The outdoor amphitheater setting at the resort state park is unique to the area and the variety of shows and entertainment scheduled in 2014 is equally appealing," said Kim Hawkins, activities coordinator for Pipestem Resort State Park. "We have storytellers, bluegrass music, town bands, and rock & roll music scheduled."

The Summer Amphitheater Pass is available at a cost of $54 and includes entry to all 16 shows. The pass holder may bring a friend, child or spouse for free. The Summer Amphitheater Season Pass may be purchased at McKeever Lodge, the park's 113-lodge and restaurant complex; the park offices; or by emailing pipestemsp@wv.gov, Subject line: Summer Amp.

Passes for individual shows also remain available at $6 for adults and $4 for youth, with the exception of the season finale featuring Rick K and the Allnighters, and some shows are free.

Tickets for individual shows are available the day of the performance. Free admission shows include the East River Mountain Town Band concert May 26, The Woodsman and E. Gale Buck concert June 20, storyteller Bil Lepp Aug. 2, and Geology Rocks! with Ken Ashton, Aug. 7. 

Additional shows may be added as the summer season advances. All shows begin at 8 p.m. Pipestem Resort State Park is located in Summers County between Athens and Hinton.
