Amphitheater to open this weekend at Paper District Marina

The long-awaited amphitheater at the city’s Paper District Marina, on Shoreline Drive next to the Chesapeake Lofts, opens for its first show at the inaugural Docktoberfest.

Docktoberfest — dubbed for the boat docks at the marina — celebrates the fall season with seasonal food, drinks and music.

While a traditional amphitheater features a large stage facing rising tiers of seats in a semicircle, Sandusky’s amphitheater is much different.

The open-air, bay-front setup fits 1,000 people comfortably, whether on lawn chairs or blankets, around the marina’s green space.
