The artists are larger than life, the venue is iconic and the concerts will be legendary. Mission Hill Family Estate is proud to announce the performers appearing this summer at the winery’s spectacular outdoor amphitheatre.

With the creation of the Amphitheatre, Proprietor Anthony von Mandl, a strong proponent of the arts, created a unique opportunity for guests to enjoy a spectacular evening of music, wine and cuisine at one of Canada’s premiere outdoor concert venues.
“A performance under the open sky at our outdoor Amphitheatre is a truly unforgettable experience,” says von Mandl. “There is something extraordinarily special about this intimate hilltop location. We are thrilled to welcome these exceptional musical performers to the winery this summer.”
For artists who command much larger venues the small capacity Amphitheatre provides a rare treat for those eager to engage with their fans on a more intimate level. Brilliant sound, glorious music, the taste of Mission Hill wines and the flavour of the food, combine to make the evening unforgettable.
