Outdoor Concerts at Merriweather Post Pavilion Rock My World


I <3Outdoor Concerts at Merriweather Post Pavilion

My husband Chris and my biggest date night splurges this summer have been on tickets to our favorite venue, Merriweather Post Pavilion. We spring for seats for the spectacular view of the bands but love idling around the lawn before the show, sipping brews and people watching.


This is not only my favorite place to catch a concert, it is simply my favorite evening haunt in the DC area. My happiness sensors start going haywire as we walk into the park. Merriweather is so chill and enjoyable, it feels miles away from my hectic summer. But after the show’s over we are paying the sitter and back in our bed well before midnight. The logistics of this place are unreal, no traffic jams, no lines, and it’s like the organizers are pumping happy gas into the air (and no, that is not a euphemism), the energy is so positive.


Chris and I saw the Of Monsters and Men with Haim and Half Moon Run, which ranks in my top five of concerts ever, and we are looking forward to seeing a few more shows this summer. Won’t you join us? Here’s the line-up for the rest of the season.


All tickets this season we have purchased ourselves.


  1. My husband and I are going to see fun. there in a couple weeks, and I couldn’t be more excited. We’ve loved MPP ever since we moved to Maryland fifteen years ago. We even brought our oldest to his very first “real” concert there when he was four. (It was to see barenaked ladies, who I’ve loved forever. I was happy to start the indoctrination with lawn seats.) 🙂
