Indian Ranch has been hosting live outdoor entertainment since 1946, making it one of the oldest concert venues in the country. It is an outdoor amphitheater situated on the shores of a beautiful lake with a record long name… Lake Chargoggagoggmanchauggagoggchaubunagungamaugg! The folklore translation of the name is “You fish on your side of the lake, I fish on my side of the lake, nobody fishes in the middle”. Kids have fun learning to pronounce the name and our lake souvenirs are a popular item.
Our venue is the most intimate live concert venue in New England. The Summer Concert Series at Indian Ranch offers our music audience an opportunity to see their favorite artist in an intimate setting. Every seat nestled between the scent of pine trees has a premier view of the stunning amphitheatre stage with the backdrop of the portrait cove of scenic Webster Lake.
Attending a concert at Indian Ranch is a great way to spend a summer day. Come early, enjoy the beach and listen to an artist on our Corral Stage located by the beach on our large pavilion. For most shows gates open two hours prior to the show.
