Merriweather Post Pavilion is an outdoor concert venue located within Symphony Woods, a 40-acre lot of preserved land in the heart of the planned community of Columbia, Maryland. It was named for the American Post Foods heiress Marjorie Merriweather Post. Originally intended to be a summer home for the National Symphony Orchestra, the pavilion later became a venue for more popular music concerts. It was designed by award-winning architect Frank Gehry and opened in 1967.
Merriweather Post Pavilion is one of the world’s most beautiful and storied amphitheatres – nestled in 40 acres of forest, smack between Washington, D.C. and Baltimore.
Every year the beloved concert venue sets out to improve. Recent enhancements include building an enormous kitchen that prepares the most delectable cuisines from all over the world, a Music Pinball Arcade, award-winning sculptures and the tripling of restroom facilities.
Merriweather is music, but so much more. It’s a gorgeous walk in the park.
In this pavilion smooth jazz fans will attend fine music activities like the Capital Jazz Fest and Wine in the Woods.
