GENERAL VENUE POLICIES
The list below highlights some of the general admittance and venue use policies.
All bags will be searched upon entry. Guests have the right to refuse a bag search and the venue has the right to refuse entry. If you have any items that are not allowed into the venue please return them to your vehicle or discard them into the appropriate trash receptacles at the entry gates.
Professional camera/video equipment is prohibited without appropriate credentials, per show.
SUBJECT TO CHANGE – The standard venue policy allows camera phones, disposable cameras, and small digital cameras. Any camera that has a detachable lens will be considered professional and not allowed in. If the camera lens zooms out of the camera more than 1 in- it will be considered a professional camera and will not be allowed in. Some artists do not permit cameras so please check back for the show you will be attending to ensure that we will be allowing cameras in. Video-recording is never permitted.
Cancellations will only occur in the event of severe weather, artist cancellation, an act of God or other rare circumstances. In the event of a show cancellation local media will be notified and any information about a potential reschedule will be made available. Refunds will be available at the point of purchase.
Any guest that is violating venue policy or law will be ejected from the venue at the sole discretion of Venue Management.
In the event of an emergency while on site— St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview has trained paramedics to assist with any medical issues. First Aid is located on the east side of the venue on the far side of the restrooms, but any staff member with a radio can dispatch First Aid to the location needed. Law Enforcement Officers are on site during events as well, in the event additional assistance is needed. St. Joseph’s Health Amphitheater at Lakeview works closely with the County of Onondaga to ensure that we are up to date on any dangerous weather or potential crowd related issues. In the event of a weather emergency- we will communicate with guests that are inside of the venue as well as guests on their way to the venue. Please follow our Facebook page for the latest developments on event days.
Guests are expected to behave respectfully and in accordance with venue policy and state laws. Any guest that is acting in a manner that Venue Management deems unsafe can be subject to eviction (see above Ejection policy) or arrest. If a guest violates a state or local law they will be subject to any tickets or punishment deemed necessary by local law enforcement.
LOST OR STOLEN TICKETS:
Please report any lost or stolen tickets to Ticketmaster as soon as you are aware they are missing or destroyed. If a ticket needs to be reprinted during the event- guests can visit the box office and have their ticket reprinted for a fee. Please note we are only able to accommodate reprints for tickets that were purchased from a Ticketmaster authorized retailer.
Scalping or reselling tickets is strictly prohibited. Any guest caught selling tickets on or around the venue will be referred to local Law Enforcement.

While we are an open air facility, smoking/vaping is not permitted within the pavilion area. Outside of the pavilion, we kindly ask that you smoke/vape away from seating areas – especially if guests around you are complaining. We appreciate your cooperation.
STROLLERS AND/OR WAGONS:
Strollers and/or wagons are not permitted due to there being no where for them to be stored. They tend to also become a tripping hazard to other guests.
Videotaping is never permitted during events. Please see event specific information related to audio recording as some artists do allow audio recording.
All shows will go on rain or shine. However, in the event of severe weather we will keep our fans notified via our Facebook page. An event may be delayed, postponed, or canceled depending on the severity of the weather expected.
