Staff courteous and helpful. In hot weather try to sit between overhead ceiling fans to provide a slight breeze. Can get very warm in late spring and summer. Present for Altherton High School graduation. Well organized and enjoyable.

This is a legendary concert venue that has stood the test of time. It is in a beautiful setting with a fantastic music experience. It still has an intimate feel with your closest 15000 friends.

We had a great time at Wine in the woods at Merriweather Post Pavilion. They had a ton of wineries and other vendors. The bathroom facilities were clean, but the urinals were positioned oddly and didnt have any privacy. Besides that I enjoyed the property....More
