A longtime fixture of the century-old Hermann Park, Miller Outdoor Theatre provides free performances, concerts, and events to the city of Houston, making for fun nights out with the family or a budget-friendly date night. 

Wedged between the Medical and Museum Districts, Miller Outdoor Theatre consists of an imposing, can’t-miss sloped lawn and rows of seating underneath the looming architecture of the concert hall. 

Presenting eight months of programming each year, from March into November, Miller Outdoor Theatre consistently brings in talented performers from around the world, theater productions, Houston Symphony performances, sing-alongs, and other special events that can be found through their online calendar. 

Attending a Show at Miller Outdoor Theatre

Seating on the lawn is always free and you’ll find groups staking their spots with blankets, picnic baskets, and small coolers. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and drink (including alcohol), but no glass containers are allowed in the park. 

If you want to opt for the covered seating area, these seats are also free but require an admission ticket that can be picked up from the nearby box office. For those shows, tickets can be claimed (four per person over age 16 while tickets last) at the box office on the day of the performance between 10:30am and 1pm.

If tickets remain after 1pm, the box office will re-open one hour before show time to distribute  remaining tickets.

Shows typically go on rain or shine.

Parking at Miller Outdoor Theatre

Parking is available in the surrounding area, including the large central lot in front of the Houston Zoo or at the nearby McGovern Centennial Gardens. Paid garage parking can also be found at the Houston Museum of Natural Science.
