Exploration Place Breaks Ground on New Amphitheater


Conco joined Exploration Place officials and community leaders on March 6 to break ground on the museum’s new outdoor amphitheater along the west bank of the Arkansas River. Conco was selected for the project, which is expected to open in time for the annual drone show in September.

The amphitheater will be able to seat about 1,500 people and will showcase the nightly Ring of Fire show at the Keeper of the Plains sculpture. It will also provide a new venue for live performances, free movie nights and other community events.
