The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion continues adding to its lineup of more than 30 visiting performers this year. The pavilion closed its administrative offices March 17 and postponed the scheduled March 23 opening of its box office indefinitely due to concerns related to the new coronavirus outbreak, although much of the pavilion's 2020 lineup remained unchanged as of March 19.

The pavilion, which marked its 30th anniversary in The Woodlands last year, will host dozens of community- and entertainment-centered events throughout its season. The venue, located at 2005 Lake Robbins Drive, The Woodlands, can hold more than 6,000 attendees in its covered area and around 10,000 people on its lawn.

When entering the pavilion, guests can expect to pass through a metal detector and remove personal items including hats, cellphones, belts and cameras. Attendees are allowed to carry bags measuring 8.5 inches by 11 inches or smaller, alongside medical and diaper bags and clear "NFL-approved" or 1-gallon freezer bags. Drawstring bags, camera cases, backpacks and other bags larger than the 8.5-by-11-inch limit are prohibited.

Guests are allowed to bring other personal items including blankets, umbrellas, certain cameras and empty or reusable bottles. The pavilion does not permit guests to bring items such as detachable-lens cameras, coolers, outside lawn chairs, tents and grills. The pavilion's rules and a full list of permitted and nonpermitted items can be viewed here.

Tickets for the pavilion's range of events can be purchased online through Ticketmaster or in person at either of the venue's on-site box offices. The box office may also be contacted by phone at 281-364-3041 or by email at [email protected] The pavilion accepts mobile entry via QR code, credit card entry or hard tickets. Print-at-home tickets are not accepted.

Season seats, starting at $3,600 for a lawn package, are available for purchase through pavilion representative JD Villaseñor at 281-210-1121 or [email protected] More information on season seats may be found here.
