The historic Iroquois Amphitheater is the official Amphitheater for the commonwealth of Kentucky. The Amphitheater is a handicapped-accessible theater that seats up to 2,400 people hosting a variety of performing arts and cultural programs located in Iroquois Park including concerts, festivals, movie nights and local community events. The Iroquois Amphitheater is operated by Louisville Metro Government and the Louisville Department of Parks and Recreation.
The Iroquois Amphitheater was constructed in the spring of 1938 through the federal Works Progress Administration labor. The facility has been a source of pride for South Louisville for decades. In 2000, Louisville Parks and Recreation began an ambitious project to modernize the facility. The renovated Iroquois Amphitheater offers greatly expanded opportunities for the highest quality arts entertainment such as more restrooms and an upgraded stage, while staying true to the historic spirit of the facility.
