Musicarnival was a music "tent" theater located on Warrensville Center Rd. in Warrensville Heights, Ohio, among the first of its kind.[1] The theater was expanded in 1958 from its initial seating capacity, growing from 1,500 to 2,563. The theater was used for performances of musicals, operettas and operas, but also hosted a number of famous musicians and rock bands, such as Duke Ellington, Stan Kenton, Dave Brubeck, The Who and Led Zeppelin.

Musicarnival closed in August 1975.
