Surrounded by a lush forest, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is an outdoor amphitheater that provides the Greater Houston region with an array of performing arts and contemporary entertainment in a setting of unparalleled beauty. The Pavilion is owned and operated by The Center for the Performing Arts at The Woodlands, a nonprofit 501 (c)(3) organization, and is governed by a volunteer board of directors.

Following an extensive facility expansion in 2000-01, The Pavilion accommodates up to 16,550 guests. Beneath it’s soaring white fabric roof is covered reserved seating for 3,000. There is room for 1,900 guests in the uncovered reserved area and nearly 12,000 on the hillside lawn.

All the ticket stubs have been counted, and with half of 2007 in the books, the No. 1 busiest, most heavily attended amphitheater concert venue in the world is the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in The Woodlands.

No. 1 in the world!

So far, 106,723 music fans have poured through the turnstiles at the CWMP.

It’s worth noting that our “shed” (that’s what amphitheaters are called in the concert trade) is the only one without a grabby corporate sponsor in its name.

“There are several reasons why we’re having such a big year, but one of them isn’t the weather. The weather’s been pretty lousy,” said Jerry MacDonald, president of the Woodlands Pavilion.

    Wow, this place hasn't been demo'd yet? Horrible acoustics, bolted stadium seating, a lawn you can't hear shit from and a concrete GA floor - they couldn't have made the place worse for live music if they'd tried.

    I've been to this place & it's such a cool venue – good stage, split chair/lawn seating, all thickly surrounded by trees for a "secluded" spot in a heavily populated area. Nice! Don't hesitate to check out a show here :)
