Venue Website

The St. Joseph's Health Amphitheater (originally known as the Lakeview Amphitheater) is an outdoor concert venue located on the shores of Onondaga Lake in the Town of Geddes, near the western edge of Syracuse, New York. It is an extension of the Empire Expo Center, home to the Great New York State Fair.

It replaced the aging Mohegan Sun Grandstand and is the main stage for concerts during the fair season. It holds 17,500 spectators.[3]


Construction began November 2014 and was completed August 24, 2015, at a cost of over $40 million.[4] The venue opened on September 3, 2015 with a concert held by country singer, Miranda Lambert.[5]

St. Joseph's Health purchased the naming rights for the venue, with rebranding/renaming beginning June 2018[6]
