About the SML Pavilion

Come enjoy happenings under the tent!

The SML Pavilion event center at Downtown Moneta is community gathering place for family, friends and visitors!

Our 40×100 tent offers seating and protection from rain and sun. The venue features professional sound and lighting and seating for 400. There is plenty of green space for outdoor enjoyment.

Come and join us for concerts, festivals and other events that will benefit Smith Mountain Lake community non-profits. The Pavilion is also a non-profit, established to create a new place for the SML community to gather and support local organizations.

Summer 2023 – Family Movie Nights

Bedford County Parks & Recreation will present family movie nights under the tent starting in Summer 2023! These family-friendly events will be free. Bring a picnic and enjoy the show!

Seasonal & Weather-Proof Event Center

Each event will benefit a local non-profit. Volunteers will be on hand to make sure every event is a fun, family-friendly community gathering.

Food and beverages will be available at the pavilion. We are excited to partner with Mayberry Diner, another new addition to Downtown Moneta!

Mayberry Diner will have a special menu for Pavilion events. Orders can be made online and will be delivered to a kiosk adjacent to the Pavilion. No waiting on line!
