No longer a theater, the Fox presents various types of the arts for the community with different interests. I went to a Willie Nelson concert there one year. It was great.

The concert was very good, The sound quality in the Fox Theater was great. Songs that were performed without a mic sounded clear. The acoustics were show quality.

A fun day spent with kids going through a corn maze, picking a pumpkin, jumping on a pillow! Great for preschool age kids!

Fox Theater is a great place to see big name artists far closer than at larger stadium type venues at a fraction of the cost. You'll be much closer than at regular no club venues in a comfortable seat. Great concert value for big names.

Do you need a special ticket or ID. To get into a meet and greet? I have purchased my ticket but it does not say anything about the meet and greet which I also purchased!

I do not know what sort of an event that you are talking about. A ticket will get you in the door and basically anywhere inside - but that would not include backstage (I think).
Where do you park and how much does it cost for one night?
