This year saw the finishing of the renovations of the complex bringing this concert venue into the 21st Century. This coincided with Columbia's 50th Anniversary celebration! They have added a greater selection of food and there are many micro Brewery beers too. They have upgraded...More

The venue is great. Lots of good food stands (depending on the event). The seating is comfortable. Wine in the woods is an exceptional event as well (recommended if you like live music, wine and relaxing outside).

One of the best outdoor venues I have been to! Bathrooms were clean and never crowded. Food and drinks were easily accessible. Drinks are pricey, but I've been to shows before where they've cost more. There was plenty of lawn seating, and they allow you...More

It is a great place for outdoor concerts, musicals, Christmas Lights Show and other cultural activities in Howard County.

Let me first say that with lawn tickets, I don’t expect too much. People are sometimes going to climb over you and be rude, bla bla bla. Well, this was waaaay more than I ever expected. I got stomped, cursed at, flipped the bird (even...More

I would tend to agree with "travelkit"'s reply. Bring only empty bottles, otherwise they think you're bringing a beverage that they prefer to sell you! Staff members are often temporary and have different... More
