Drive-In Concerts & Comedy Shows
Comedy is funnier when you hear it with people you like. Music is a lot more enjoyable when it’s shared.
You can watch a comedy show or a music video on your phone and, if you’re into solitary, enjoy it. But how much more fun is it to enjoy a live concert or stand up comedy with your family and friends! And now you can do it safely at the Yarmouth Drive-In in West Yarmouth, Massachusetts.
The Drive-In has 3 state-of-the-art digital massive high definition LED screens and a stage. It is the only venue in New England capable of showing concerts, movies, comedy, and sports broadcasts. The screens are more than 40 feet wide and can be viewed even during the day. The audio broadcast is FM transmission so you can listen through your car radio or a portable radio.
Social distancing is enforced. You’ll be parked in a pod large enough to have you surrounded by vehicles on three sides and be 10 feet away from other patrons. You can bring lawn chairs or blankets and sit in the pod beside your vehicle. Masks are required whenever you’re outside your vehicle.
Concessions are contactless. You place your food order via an app. You’ll be alerted when it’s ready. This limits the need for patrons to stand around waiting for their food.
You can find low prices for these concerts & comedy shows here.
