Culver to Open New Amphitheater

Posted: Updated:

The town of Culver will Thursday celebrate the grand opening of the new Damore Amphitheater. The town says the facility, which has been in the works for three years, will make Culver a hub of art and culture.

The amphitheater is located at Lake Maxinkuckee in the Marshall County town. The idea for the project followed a community survey conducted by the Culver Parks and Recreation Department, the results of which showed residents wanted more outdoor activities and local arts programming.

The facility was funded through a crowdfunding campaign, which raised nearly $46,000, along with a $30,000 matching grant from the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority and a $25,000 grant from the Marshall County Community Foundation.

"The Damore Amphitheater will be a beautiful venue for all kinds of events including outdoor concerts, shows, and presentations. Its open design will also give the audience a view of Lake Maxinkuckee," said Culver Town Manager Jonathan Leist. "Thanks to our recent Stellar designation, the Culver Beach Lodge just next door to the amphitheater is getting some long-awaited renovations. Together, these projects will really enhance Culver Park and improve quality of life in our community."

The grand opening celebration is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. at Culver Park and is free and open to the public.
