Construction has been completed on the striking new Gerry Frank/Salem Rotary Amphitheater.

Located in Riverfront Park, Salem’s premier downtown venue for outdoor events, the $4-milion amphitheater is a joint project of the City of Salem and the Rotary Club of Salem. CBTWO Architects based the structure’s sweeping wood “basket-weave” concept on the open-weave baskets of the Kalapuya Native American Tribe, whose history is an integral part of Riverfront Park’s land and culture. 

The amphitheater has an estimated seating capacity of 3,000-3,5000, and includes a covered stage, an acre of contoured lawn and a plaza equipped with power for up to 14 vendors. Riverfront Park sits on 23 acres and features a carousel, splash fountain, pavilion river access, The A.C. Gilbert House and Children’s Museum, and walking bridges to two neighboring parks. For information about booking the amphitheater for an event, contact Richard Chandler; rchandler@cityofsalem.net

With 34,000 square feet of flexible meeting space that can accommodate large meetings, weddings, galas, seminars, corporate gatherings, product launches and private parties of up to 650, the Lynnwood Convention Center delivers on value, innovation and excellence.

 

Located in the heart of the Fort Worth Stockyards National Historic District, Hotel Drover, an award-winning Autograph Collection Hotel by Marriott, focuses on simple pleasures and genuine hospitality.

In 1927, Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton said, "Abilene, Texas will be well prepared to handle large conventions and please the most fastidious visitor." Nearly 95 years later, Abilene has fulfilled this vision and is excited to welcome back the Hilton family of hotels in the heart of Downtown Abilene with a recently announced DoubleTree by Hilton.
