Dine at the Ford Year Round!

The John Anson Ford Theatres offer opportunities to celebrate, entertain and socialize year round. Dine, wine and unwind!

Summer Season Concessions


Picnicking at the Ford














The Ford grounds open one hour before Saturday morning Big World Fun family events and Monday evening JAM Sessions. For all other events, the grounds open for pre-show picnicking two hours prior to the performance.

Concessions are available on-site by cash or credit card or you can bring your own food and beverage (wine and beer are permitted) for pre-show picnicking in the terraced entryway or snacking in your seat during the performance. Also available are value meals and box dinners and catering options. Please note that that there are no tables in the amphitheatre and that all picnic coolers, baskets, etc. need to be small enough to fit under your seat so as not to block any walkways.

Become a Friend of the Ford at the $250 level and get the benefit of reserving a picnic table for the shows of your choice. Reservations can be made by calling (323) 769-2147 or emailing
