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.

The Pavilion is a non-profit, established to create a new place for the SML community to gather and support local organizations.

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!

We will also have beer, wine, soda and other beverages available for purchase at our concession area.

Our Community Partners

Every event hosted at the SML Pavilion will benefit a community non-profit organization. Selected organizations receive a portion of the ticket and concession sales from each event.

Events are staffed by non-profit volunteers who make every event an enjoyable gathering. Sign up for our email list if you are interested in helping to run an upcoming event.
