Pavilion Stage & Lawn

Pavilion Stage & Lawn

The Outdoor Pavilion at Roanoke Island Festival Park is unmatched in its scenic beauty, modern technology and exciting entertainment. Roanoke Sound’s water surrounds the 3,800 square foot stage and provides a consistently charming backdrop for concerts, weddings and performances. The expansive lawn (2 acres) provides seating for up to 3,000 people. 

The stage, made from hardy Brazilian walnut will outlast the trials of Outer Banks weather and cedar shakes cover the sides and roof. Two giant sliding glass windows upstage provide protection from the wind for performers while the audience continues to enjoy the gorgeous view. There are two larger dressing rooms (with ample make-up lights) and two smaller ones, all with bathroom and shower. There is also a small office. The loading dock has been designed for easy off-loads for tour buses or catering trucks. 

All of these qualities combine to promise a delightful experience for both audience members, performers and wedding parties.
