Inclement Weather

A determination of weather-altered plans will be made by 3pm on the day of the concert. Check our home page or our Facebook page for updates the day of the concert.

In the event of a cancellation, guests will be notified with additional information.


The option to receive a refund will be offered if we must cancel a concert due to weather. We do not honor refunds on tickets purchased from a third party. Schedule and pricing subject to change.

Concert Parking

  • Due to limited parking at Gate 2 and in the interest of safety, all concert parking is limited to the main lot at Gate 1 or the Parking Garage.
  • We also ask guests not to try and drop off anything, neither people nor personal effects such as coolers, at Gate 2.
  • Parking in the Camp lot and check in at the Camp ticket booth are reserved for concert sponsors and “Friends” level donors.
  • Complimentary wheelchairs available at the Information booths, based on first come, first served basis.
  • Tram and Golf Cart service are not available to transport guests on concert evenings.

Lawn Chair Etiquette

We think seeing the band is as much fun as hearing the band. Please help your neighbor on the concert lawn keep their view clear by staying low.

To ensure clear sightlines and enhance enjoyment for all guests, we ask all concertgoers to respect the following:

  • Only low-profile lawn chairs and picnic blankets may be in the area closest to the stage. Note the area indicated on this diagram will allow for “beach-style” lawn chairs (not exceeding four inches from the ground to the bottom of the seat) only.
  • Chairs with seats higher than four inches from the ground are welcome further back on the concert lawn.

Thank you from the Dallas Arboretum, the band and your concert neighbors!
