Blossom Music Center
Blossom Music Center has provided an inviting and gracious summer home for The Cleveland Orchestra since it opened in 1968. Its beautiful outdoor setting is an integral part of the Blossom experience.
Directions & Parking
Located just north of Akron, Ohio, and about 25 miles south of Cleveland, Blossom lies within the city limits of Cuyahoga Falls, an Ohio community first settled in the early 1800s. Blossom is situated on 200 acres of rolling hills surrounded by the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.
Parking is free with your ticket to Festival concerts featuring The Cleveland Orchestra for subscribers or when tickets are purchased 10 days in advance of the performance. Parking in Paved Lots A, B, C, D and E requires a printed and dated hangtag.
Blossom Music Center offers two primary seating areas: the lawn, and the pavilion. While the lawn gives an expansive & charming vantage point to experience concerts with The Cleveland Orchestra under the stars, the pavilion provides a variety of fixed seating canopied by its iconic sloped roof.

Lawn Ticket Books
Bring your 2020 Lawn Book Tickets with you to this summer's Blossom Music Festival
All Lawn Ticket Books (including Under 18s Free passes) originally sold for the 2020 Blossom Music Festival can be used for any of the announced Cleveland Orchestra concerts this summer.
Due to social distancing guidelines, lawn capacity will be limited, so we advise those using Lawn Book tickets to arrive early to guarantee a spot. New Lawn Ticket Books are not currently being offered due to limited capacity.
Under 18s Free
The Cleveland Orchestra is offering free Lawn tickets to young people ages 17 and under for all Blossom Festival concerts. Two “under 18s” will be admitted with each paid adult admission.
“Under 18s Free” is a program of The Cleveland Orchestra's Center for Future Audiences, an initiative endowed by the Maltz Family Foundation to engage and expand the Orchestra's audience for symphonic music.
