What's on the Menu?
Alongside our concessions partner, Aramark, we're excited to offer you a wide range of concessions options. Whether you're looking for a quick bite to eat or grabbing a whole meal to enjoy on the lawn, we've got you covered. There's traditional concert fare like hamburgers, nachos and funnel cakes right alongside awesome eats like Torchy's Tacos. With cold drinks ranging from Pepsi products to an ever-changing variety of St. Arnold's brews, craft beers, wines and speciality cocktails, there's always a thirst-quenching option right around the corner. Keep an eye (and an ear) out for concessions team members ready to bring drinks and bites to you, too.
Bring Your Own Food
Food in a one gallon plastic bag for personal consumption is permitted at all contemporary concerts. Likewise, food (not limited to a one gallon plastic bag) is permitted at performing arts events. In accordance with TABC laws, visitors may not bring any beverage items into the venue at any time.
Volunteer to Fundraise
ARAMARK at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion is looking for Non-Profit Organizations (NPO’s) who would be interested in raising funds by working in our Concession Stands for a percentage of the sales. If you are interested in receiving more information, please E-mail Duane Ussery, ARAMARK Concessions Manager, at [email protected]
The Pavilion Lounge
Located inside the Event Center, The Pavilion Lounge is a great place to cool off, grab a drink and catch up with friends. The Lounge opens an hour before gates, closes an hour after the show ends, and is accessible to all ticket holders at most shows. It offers a full bar, air-conditioning, seating, and large HD screen.

Group must be a non-profit, tax-exempt group, as defined in Section 501 of the Internal Revenue Code. If the group provides food, shelter, clothing or other necessities of life to its members, recipients of such necessities may not volunteer. If you have 501(c) status or can become 501(c) registered, you are eligible to join us.

This program is open to student groups, fraternities, sororities, sports teams, library groups, animal rescue groups, youth sports, adult sports leagues, religious groups, veterans groups, schools, churches, senior groups, cultural clubs, community organizations…the list is endless.

Drive Safe, Drive Sober Program
The Pavilion and Aramark Sports & Entertainment have teamed up to encourage the use of designated drivers. Guests wishing to participate in the "Responsibility Has Its Rewards" program must be 21 years of age and have a valid driver's license.
In return for promising responsibility for the safe and sober transportation of their group from the venue, the registrant will receive one (1) coupon redeemable for a free small soft drink during the concert.
Registrants will be required to wear a designated driver wristband to identify that they have pledged to be a designated driver and not consume alcohol at the concert. The designated driver booth is located at the Guest Services Information Booth in The Pavilion’s North Plaza.
