The construction of Klaipėda summer stage started in 1977 and was completed in 1983.
It is an object of the city's cultural infrastructure, closely related to the traditions of the UNESCO-protected Song Festivals and the fostering of national culture. The stage is not included in the heritage register and is not to be protected as an architectural work.
Regional and national festivals, concerts and other events were held there. The first multi-thousand rallies of Sąjūdis and Marches of Rock also took place there.
Recently, the stage is used very rarely.
