The Heartbeat of a Community. 

Nestled in the wooded heart of downtown Columbia, Maryland, Merriweather Post Pavilion is a world-renowned amphitheater designed by Frank Gehry that has hosted the biggest acts in music and performing arts over the last five decades. The Commission is currently overseeing a series of significant renovations—the first in nearly 50 years—that will enhanced its status as a home for top-notch artistic, cultural, and entertainment events for decades to come.  For more about those renovations, please see this post or our 2018 annual report. 

You can follow progress with the renovations our Instagram and Facebook pages, or see the site development plan approved by the Howard County Planning Board in December of 2015.
