  • Can we bring in non-alcoholic beverages?

    • Yes, if it is in a sealed container.

  • What time should we arrive to get the best seat?

    • If you have reserved seats it doesn’t matter. If you have general admission seats then it is up to you to decide how long you are willing to wait and how important it is to be towards the front of the Amphitheater. The line often starts forming an hour before the gates open. The acoustics are excellent. You will be able to hear very well everywhere!

    • If it is necessary for you to park in the Maryhill Museum parking area then you will be bussed to the winery.  It is about 3/4 of a mile away.  Please allow extra time to park and make the bus ride.  We hire multiple busses for this and usually the wait isn't too long.

  • Can we return to our car if we have forgotten something or would like to grab a jacket?

    • Unfortunately not. Once you leave we cannot allow re-entry into the venue.   Please take in whatever you will need to be comfortable.  There are no exceptions.

  • How do you fit all of the cars in? Where does everyone park?

    • We not only use the lot you may have used if you have visited, but we also have a continuation of our parking lot the goes on to the East. In addition we utilize the Maryhill Museum’s grounds for parking and run multiple buses to bring our guests the ¾ of a mile back to the Winery. The parking fee is included in the price of your ticket.

  • Does Maryhill Winery provide any shuttle buses to any of the lodging partners so we don’t have to drive?

    • Unfortunately we don’t. There isn’t a practical way for us to arrange for several thousand guests to shuttle in vastly different directions. We wish we could provide such a service.

  • The website says to contact you about parking for people with disabilities. Why?

    • When you arrive please show the parking attendant at the entrance of the parking lot that you have a person with disabilities window hanger. You will be directed as to where to park. If necessary you will be transported via our van to the proper entrance.

  • If I am a person with disabilities and have need of the Maryhill van for transportation can my group ride with me?

    • You may have one person join you to help you to your seat. The rest of your group will need to go to the main line and sit in their designated seating area.

  • I bought General Admission Tickets and yet it appears I have a seat number. Does the General Admission area have assigned seats?

    • No, it is merely a way for Ticketfly to track their tickets.

    • In most cases you can but it is always better to get your tickets in advance.

  • Do we have to be 21 to see a show?

    • All ages are welcome.

      • Please see our lodging page for up to date information about the lodging options nearby.

  • Is the winery open for tasting during the concert?

    • No, because no one would be able to enjoy the experience with so many guests in the tasting room all at once.

  • Why are the bottle prices higher during a concert?

    • $2.00 of every bottle sale goes to Heifer International.

    • Costs of doing business are much higher during a concert and the revenue from ticket sales goes mostly to the artist.
