THE CYNTHIA WOODS MITCHELL PAVILION - THE WOODLANDS, TX. We are so fortunate here in The Woodlands to have a first class entertainment venue, The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion. This is a wonderful ampitheater that hosts some of the top entertainers in the country.
This year is a special year for the Pavilion as Mrs. Cynthia Woods Mitchell passed away on December 27, 2009. The Pavilion originally opened in 1990 and has continuously offered quality musical shows along with the ballet and the symphony. Both Cynthia and George Mitchell enjoyed the arts and saw their dream of this type of venue flourish in The Woodlands.
After Hurricane Ike last year, the Pavilion experienced extensive damage. Today the venue is better than ever with more covered seating available. The line up of entertainment is looking good this year with Van Morrison, The Dave Matthews Band, Tom Petty, Joe Cocker and the always popular Jimmy Buffett are just some of the scheduled performers for this spring and summer.
For a full schedule visit The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion link. No matter if you choose the regular covered seats or want to bring your blanket and lay out on the hill, you will love the Pavilion experience. Tickets go fast so get to the website and purchase yours today.
If you are coming from out of town, the new Avia Hotel in Market Street and the Waterway Marriott are good choices in which you can walk to the Pavilion. Along with great food and shopping, a visit to The Woodlands would be a great choice!
