Known as one of the most unique amphitheaters in the country, the Frank Gehry-designed Merriweather Post Pavilion is conveniently situated between Washington D.C. and Baltimore, Maryland. Despite its highly urbanized location, the venue boasts a peaceful, rustic vibe thanks to the surrounding 40-acre Symphony Woods. It’s no wonder Merriweather is a favorite spot for fans and performers alike.

Originally intended as the home of the National Symphony Orchestra, Merriweather Post Pavilion opened its doors in 1967. Summer symphonies soon gave way to legendary rock ‘n’ roll performances by the likes of Jefferson Airplane, Led Zeppelin and the Grateful Dead, who claimed the venue as a favorite stop while on tour. Famous performers who have left a mark include Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong, who inspired the construction of a mosh pit, and Tom Jones, for whom loge sections were added.

Columbia, Maryland's Merriweather Post Pavilion and its parking facilities are updated regularly. Its earth-friendly philosophy is apparent in details like solar panels that power the house lights, composting, and a commitment to Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design standards.

The outdoor venue hosts concerts during the warmer months that run the gamut from rock and soul to classical. Parking is available onsite and nearby, but patrons must select a spot and purchase a parking pass in advance. Once inside, Merriweather Post Pavilion provides an extensive food and drink menu, expanded restaurant facilities and a Music Pinball Arcade.
