Best Outdoor Music Venue

Blossom Music Center

Readers' Choice

Even after four decades, Blossom still stands as the best place to catch a concert under the stars. Set on 200 rolling acres in the heart of the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, the venue features the perfect atmosphere for those looking to lose themselves in the performance and the serene natural surroundings. The design of the pavilion and the bowl shape of the grounds keep reverb and echoes to a minimum, meaning that even in the cheap seats, you won't have to suffer through a night of bad audio. The summer concerts run the gamut and will include everything from the Cleveland Orchestra to the biggest acts in pop, rock, hip hop and country. This summer alone, the place will host an eclectic mix of music including righteous hip-hop star Chance the Rapper, punk icons Green Day and country superstars Lady Antebellum.
