After much deliberation, The Decatur Park District has canceled all events that are part of the 2020 Season at The Devon Lakeshore Amphitheater due to the ongoing effects of COVID-19 and crowd restrictions as set forth by our Governor’s Restore Illinois phased re-opening plan. Rentals of The Devon for events following phased guidelines will be considered on a case by case basis.
The Devon is currently working with the performers originally scheduled for 2020 to determine which events can be rescheduled for the 2021 season. For events that are not rescheduled for the 2021 season, refunds will be issued as described.
Season ticket holders and sponsors will have the choice to roll their tickets to the 2021 season, request a full refund, or donate any portion to the Decatur Parks Foundation to support arts programming.
“We want our guests to have the experience they expect when they come to The Devon. With the current restrictions, we don’t feel that we could offer that in the time remaining left in the summer,” stated Mike Wilcott, General Manager of The Devon.
During this time of new beginnings, The Devon is available for rentals keeping in mind the IDPH and CDC guidelines.
With our sights set on 2021, our board and staff look forward to welcoming you back to The Devon with a renewed sense of enthusiasm as the health and safety of our community is restored. The continued patience, understanding and support is appreciated as The Devon works to offer more outstanding experiences in 2021.
If you have any questions, please contact Mike Wilcott at [email protected] or call 422-5911.
