|About these ratings|
Named for former U.S. President Gerald Ford, this outdoor performance venue plays host to some of Vail's most popular events, including the International Dance Festival and the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival. However, according to previous audience members, what makes this amphitheater special is its surroundings. According to one TripAdvisor user, "All of the seats are covered protecting you from inclement weather with … views of the Rockies." You are also welcome to bring a blanket and sprawl out on the lawn in front of the stage.
The Gerald R. Ford Amphitheater is located nearby the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens in central Vail. Performances are held on a regular basis during the warmer months. Ticket prices depend on the show and the type of seat. For more information, visit the amphitheater's website.
