“Dirty restrooms, Hilly terrain”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

The restrooms were very dirty for the first graduation of the day in May - a seasons worth of dirt, spiders, etc - no excuse for the lack of cleaning. Otherwise the facility has been showing its age for quite a while. the hilly paths limit access for many .

“Capital Jazz Festival”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 12, 2013

This year's festival was not a good experience. There was several changes and it was not communicated up front.

“Great concert venue!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

Merriweather is a great concert venue. It's got a great location with plenty of parking. You can buy tickets on site when they go on sale avoiding the pricey add on's that ticketmaster/ticketfly charge. The seating is adequate and the path to the seats down the aisles does not involve steps, which is great when you're trying to move in a crowd. Consessions are expensive, like everywhere else. Parking is good if you know where to park. There are two sections and the one that is in the grassy area is the best. The other lot (bigger) is on dirt and you have to walk down and up a steep hill to get through the gates..

“Beautiful Venue, Great Music”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Every year, I look forward to lineup of artists who play this beautiful venue, set in the green areas of Columbia, Maryland. Even the cheap seats on the lawn, give you a great view of the stage and a wonderful outdoor evening experience featuring great music. I strongly recommend that you visit and enjoy a pleasant evening, especially if one of your favorites artists is performing.

“Concert Hall”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

I don't like you can't bring your own alcohol. Prefer Wolf Trap all day long. Otherwise it is nice to go for an outdoor show.
