Live at the Hilde FAQ

The Live at the Hilde concert series is held at the Hilde Performance Center outdoor amphitheater, in the northwestern suburb of Plymouth, MN. This venue is a hidden gem just outside of Minneapolis and features an open-air concert atmosphere with a stunning glass stage wall in a scenic park. The City of Plymouth hosts several community events (i.e. Music in Plymouth) in the park throughout the year. SMA’s Live at the Hilde concerts bring national touring acts and a full concert experience to this amazing venue.
