The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is a non-profit organization providing a diversity in the performing and visual arts and Live Music Entertainment Choices in Houston over the past several years. The outdoor theater offers covered seating as well as a large grass covered hill for 'lawn seating'. The Pavilion was afforded a major upgrade between the 2008/2009 concert season thanks to Hurricane Ike.
Additional upgrades to the outdoor amphitheater included in 2017 increased the entire soaring roof structure (yet again), improving guest amenities and installing additional reserved and covered seating. For most events, parking lots open 90 minutes prior to the performance, while the Pavilion gates are opened 60 minutes prior to the performance.
