Kingswood Music Theatre is a 15,000-seat amphitheatre located at Canada's Wonderland in Vaughan, Ontario. Kingswood is open from May to September. Opened in 1983, Kingswood hosted many "big-name" concerts.
After the Molson Amphitheatre opened in 1995 and Air Canada Centre opened in 1999 the use of Kingswood as a music venue declined. Cultural festivals at the theatre became more prominent. The box office at the gates of Wonderland was removed because of the decline of the theatre as a music venue.
Many big artists and bands had played the concert venue in its heyday such as Eric Clapton, Grateful Dead, Laura Branigan, David Lee Roth and Canadian rock music legend Kim Mitchell, who won a prestigious award for ticket sales of over 100,000 tickets sold to his various multi night concerts at the venue.
