Pacific Amphitheatre - Costa Mesa, CA

The Pacific Amphitheatre is an outdoor live music venue in Costa Mesa, California that opened in July 1983. It was closed in the early ’90s and later reopened in 2003 for the annual Orange County Fair. It underwent reconstruction and improvements in 2015. Aside from hosting music concerts, it also serves as the commencement site for the nearby Orange Coast College.

With room for more than 8,000 fans, the venue includes seating such as the intimate pit area, the orchestra, VIP seating, and general admission. Accessible seating is also available.

The Pacific Amphitheatre is accessible by the OC Fair Express, which is available on Fridays through Sundays only. Patrons may also take a bicycle, taxi, or private car. General parking is available along with parking for buses and limos and VIP parking.

Video and camera policies may apply. Video and audio recording equipment may be prohibited depending on performer’s request. Monopods or selfie sticks, tablets, action cameras, professional cameras, and cameras with detachable lenses are prohibited.

Outside food and beverages are not allowed except for foods packed in one-gallon clear plastic bags and a factory-sealed bottle of water. Large, hard coolers are not allowed to avoid obstruction.

Even if the main concert has ended, people can still choose to stay in the venue and enjoy other attractions such as the Centennial Farm, Orange County Market Place, and more.

We currently do not have any tickets available for this venue. Here is a list of other events nearby.
