Security and regulations

Please note that due to the large number of spectators expected for our events, several security measures are put in place to ensure the best possible conduct of your evening. Since our organization prioritizes your safety as well as the security of artists, the Cogeco Amphitheatre  has certain rules that spectators must follow.

List of prohibited items:

  • Food / beverages / alcohol / cans / glass, plastic or any kind of bottles containing liquid (empty bottles are accepted and can be filled in one of our water stations)
  • Animals (unless authorized animals such as guide dogs)
  • Umbrellas or any other object that obstructs the spectator's view
  • Professional cameras*, audio devices, video cameras or any similar device

* It is strictly forbidden to bring a professional camera (with a detachable and/or more than 2-inch lens) to the Cogeco Amphitheatre. A camera that respect the lens sizes are allowed. Photos taken via a mobile phone are allowed. Please note that in all cases, the use of flash is prohibited.

  • Backpacks / suitcases / sports bags or any other type of bag
  • Tobacco products, electronic cigarettes or any illicit substance (smoking or steaming inside the Cogeco Amphitheatre, even on the grass esplanade, is prohibited)
  • Bells, horns or any object or device emitting noise
  • Drones or similar devices
  • Chairs (unless otherwise advise)
  • Weapons and bladed weapons
  • Any other object identified as hazardous or harmful by security personnel.

The Cogeco Amphitheatre does not have any place to store items. Anyone with any of the items listed above will therefore be denied access to the indoor and outdoor theatre and may even confiscate items identified as hazardous or harmful to spectators and employees. In any case, no object will be recoverable.

Site entry and exit

There is no re-entry. Once you have exited the building, you cannot re-enter unless it is an emergency. This rule also applies to smokers.

Please note that at the entrance, all bags will be searched. Only personal purses and bags with baby stuff are allowed. Any bag larger than a purse ( backpack, tote bag, etc.) is prohibited. At certain performances, the staff of the Cogeco Amphitheatre reserves the right to conduct a summary search. Any spectator who does not collaborate in the search will be refused entry to the event without a refund.

The Cogeco Amphitheatre has no place to store items. Therefore, any person in possession of any of listed item above will be denied access to the indoor and outdoor venue or even confiscate objects identified as dangerous or harmful to spectators and employees. In this case, they will not be recoverable.

Spectators will also be required to sit at the seat designated by their ticket and present it to any Cogeco Amphitheatre employee who requests it. The management reserves the right to expel any spectator whose conduct would be disrespectful, dangerous or harm the smooth running of the event, and without refund.

Please note that the regulations are subject to additions and revisions at any time without notice. If you have any questions or comments, please contact customer service at 819 378-2009.
