As if Hersheypark itself weren’t entertaining enough in the summertime, there is SO much more to do in Hershey, PA and their summer concerts this year are off the charts! (See what I did there?) With three major concert venues, you’ll find something for every taste – country, rock, some 90s throwbacks, some LEGENDS, and some great performances the kids will enjoy.
A Summer of Sweet Entertainment in Hershey, PA
Concerts are held at three main venues: Hersheypark Stadium, GIANT Center, and the Hershey Theatre. I’ve personally seen shows in all three and they each have a unique feel that’s just awesome…especially when your favorite stars are performing!
Find the complete entertainment calendar here. I’ll show you a few highlights from each venue below!
Hersheypark Stadium is located right next to Hersheypark, just a hop and skip through the parking lot, and it’s a gorgeous outdoor venue. It’s a perfect atmosphere for a summer evening concert. Here are a few highlights, but be sure to check out the entire line-up right here where you can also grab tickets.
June 29: Def Leppard with REO Speedwagon and Tesla (be still my 80s-hair heart!)
July 16: Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas
July 19: Paul McCartney (WHAT?!?!)
August 20: Show of the Summer
August 27: Blink-182
September 15 – Jason Aldean
GIANT Center is also right in the same Hersheypark parking lot area (read: Hersheypark during the day, concert at night!) and this is an indoor venue. We’ve seen many shows here and things like Disney on Ice and the Hershey Bears games. I don’t think there’s a bad seat in the house.
Get the entire line-up of events and purchase your tickets here. These are some of my favorite shows!
July 10: Slipknot with Marilyn Manson and Of Mice and Men
July 30: Kidz Bop Kids
September 23: Elton John and His Band (another legend in Hershey!)
October 1: Carrie Underwood (can’t wait for this one!!)
The Hershey Theatre is STUNNING. I LOVE this venue not only for the gorgeous theater but the intimacy of it. It’s perfect for smaller crowds. Check out all of these pictures I took of the Hershey Theatre. It’s just WOW.
