Mishawaka Amphitheatre

Mishawaka Amphitheatre


There is nothing like taking a drive up the Poudre Canyon to beat the summer heat. The nearly 14 mile drive up the Poudre Canyon Highways to “the Mish” is easy and scenic.

In 1916 Walter S. Thompson was inspired to build the Mishawaka Dance hall after being inspired by music in the Poudre Canyon. he homesteaded the property and opened it in 1919. Since then, it has been a destination for music and celebration.
