The Moondance at Midnight Pass Amphitheater in the heart of Beaumont Centre offers all ages an opportunity to enjoy live music, films and community events. Patrons can spread blankets or set up their lawn chairs before the event to enjoy a picnic dinner with family and friends on the amphitheater's expanse of lawn. Craft beer and food trucks are available onsite for most events. 

Opened in 2010, Moondance Amphitheater is a gift to the community from Haymaker Development Company and the C.M. Gatton Trust. The amphitheater brings local, regional and national artistic talent to Beaumont and the city of Lexington.

Moondance is located at 1152 Monarch Street, behind the Liquor Barn on Harrodsburg Road and near the Kroger at Beaumont Centre Circle. A variety of restaurants can be found in the surrounding Beaumont community for pre- and post-show indulgences.
