Downtown Columbia is the home of Merriweather Post Pavilion, which Rolling Stone magazine ranked as one of the best outdoor concert venues in the country. The pavilion is undergoing a $19 million expansion and renovation as part of the redevelopment of Downtown Columbia.

Other cultural amenities are being planned for adjacent Symphony Woods, home of popular festivals and fairs, and for public art displays throughout Downtown.

The Chrysalis, an outdoors performing arts venue, opened in April 2017 and has hosted a multitude of events so far including Downtown Columbia’s inaugural book festival, Books in Bloom, and OPUS 1, a music, art, light and sound festival that took over Merriweather Post Pavilion, The Chrysalis, and Symphony Woods in early October 2017.

Downtown Columbia also includes extensive pathways for walkers and bicyclists. A spa, Haven on the Lake, overlooks the lake, where families paddle boats in warm weather. In the summer months, free concerts and movies are held at the Lakefront, where some of the city’s best restaurants are located: Clyde’s, Petit Louis Bistro and Sushi Sono.

As development progresses, Downtown Columbia will become even more of a destination for dining with an array of new and unique restaurants and cafés.
