Lincoln Amphitheatre's roots go all the way back to 1959 when the Lincoln Club of Southern Indiana was formed by a group of women who wanted to study and preserve the history of Lincoln’s formative years spent in Spencer County.

Nearly three decades later, in 1987, the amphitheatre opened for its first season. Since then Lincoln Amphitheatre has become one of the largest fully-covered amphitheaters in the United States. The 1,500-seat venue is located at 15032 E. County Rd 1500 in Lincoln City (the boyhood home of Abraham Lincoln), just off of I-64 between Evansville, IN, and Louisville, KY.
