Every season the Pavilion provides over 50 nights of live arts and entertainment free of charge to an audience totaling over 50,000 – from Westport and more than thirty neighboring communities and beyond! To date, the Pavilion has welcomed over ONE MILLION guests under the stars - and we are preparing for the next million.
As designed by Westporter Peter Cadoux, Principal of Peter Cadoux Architects, P.C., our new pavilion will feature greatly improved facilities and amenities for audiences and artists alike. Our new LEED-certified building will have a covered stage with vastly updated technical abilities, furthering our capacity to attract world-class artists as well as to support emerging ones. The enhanced park will feature an improved RiverWalk and picnic groves, an info booth and community hospitality center outfitted with food services and indoor restrooms - all of which will feature universal access.
The Pavilion is already an anchor for our community and economy; delivering both immediate and lasting benefits; profoundly and positively affecting our patrons, participants and partners. This new Pavilion will allow us to increase our outreach and expand our services. This will be our Pavilion for the 21st century, ready and able to serve the next generation and beyond.
