The Tuscaloosa Amphitheater sits beautifully on 15 acres amidst the banks of the Black Warrior River. Located only minutes away from the University of Alabama campus and blocks from the lively downtown district, the Amphitheater is the largest outdoor theater in West Alabama and a premier location for arts and entertainment. Alabama Magazine voted the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater as the No. 1 amphitheater in the state for the 2018 “Best of Bama” awards. In addition to its many great concerts, the amphitheater also hosts the annual Celebration on the River, a free July 4th celebration featuring the Tuscaloosa Symphony Orchestra. The Holiday season is celebrated each winter with Holidays on the River, including an ice skating and many festive activities. The venue is also available for rent for private parties and events.
