Directions to Jacksonville University Riverfront Amphitheater: Enter the University through the main gate from the roundabout at University and Merrill. Continue straight, down the hill, until you come to a parking lot. This is a great place to park, as the Dolphin Green and Amphitheater are right there on the St. Johns River. View the campus map (search for “Amphitheater”).

Great Florida Riverway Reunion Event Series
This concert event is part of the Great Florida Riverway Reunion – a series of events happening on February 4, 2023 throughout the Great Florida Riverway. It is a day where people that love the Ocklawaha and St. Johns Rivers and Silver Springs can come together to celebrate, connect and take action to reunite the Great Florida Riverway by breaching the Rodman/Kirkpatrick Dam. It’s not just one big reunion but a series of reunions from the headwaters of the Ocklawaha River at Lake Apopka to the confluence of the Ocklawaha and Silver Rivers near Silver Springs, to Palatka, near where the Ocklawaha and St. Johns Rivers unite, all the way to Jacksonville where the great riverway meets the Atlantic.
