This beautiful building has housed many events that I have attended over the years. The events have included rallies for presidential candidates as well as the Harrisburg Symphony. The view from all seats is excellend as well as the sound quality.

This is an awesomely interesting building. We are always mesmerized by the architecture. I have attended several functions at this facility and I don't think there is a bad seat in the building. As with most venues in Harrisburg, parking is a challenge no matter...More

There is no parking on site at the Forum, except Handicap. There are paid lots/garages/street parking close though. The building is beautiful. Definitely something to behold.

I attend a concert at the forum several time and I have never had a bad seat. It is not a large venue so every seat is a good seat

There is not a bad seat in the house. The acoustics are wonderful. The seats are comfortable enough. Take a few moments to gaze at the ceiling while you are there. Restrooms are conveniently located, but there aren't enough of them.

This is a beautiful building offering great shows, but the line to use the tiny restroom facilities is a problem for anyone suffering an "urgency." Like every place in Harrisburg, parking is a problem, even evenings and weekends.

Attended the POPS Series with James Bond music as the show. The conductor and musicians do an excellent job with funny props to go along with the stories, and then of course the music typically with great vocalists!
