Reviews for Friends of the Levitt Pavilion Arlington

Rating: 5 stars  

The Levitt is one of the best venues in the city of Arlington. Free shows, a beautiful lawn and the casual atmosphere make it a perfect place to enjoy live music. And it's FREE! It just doesn't get better than that. It's an honor to serve on the board of the Levitt Pavilion and to share this gem with folks who haven't found it yet.

Love the atmosphere and the free entertainment for families! My only wish is the shows would run year round as the summer here is pretty hot to get little ones out in. But other than that this is a great group keeping our city involved and giving families fun things to do during the summer and fall

I have volunteered for the Levitt in Arlington since the first spring season. Each year the bands are better, the crowds are bigger and I enjoy it more. I've brought friends and family there many times without disappointment - they always have a great time! I've seen families grow, marriage proposals and friendships made. The Levitt in Arlington is the BEST place to bring your family and friends for a great night of music under the stars!!!

The Levitt Pavilion in Arlington provides a positive environment for the whole community.
Anyone interested can come and listen to free music. It's a very family friendly experience.
The organization helps bond our community and is a safe place for citizens to relax and enjoy a night out! I am excited that we have such a venue in our city!

Once again, the Levitt Pavilion Arlington has put together a wonderful season of music. I am already looking forward to the Fall 2016 season! The staff and volunteers found groups that appealed to a wide variety of people, worked hard to provide a great setting, and made all feel welcome. I'm a Levitt fan for life!

Year after year, the Levitt provides great music free to the public. My family and I have heard groups we wouldn't otherwise have been exposed to - and have discovered some new favorites! The setting is lovely, the evening weather is usually comfortable even in July, it's a good place to meet up with friends and family, it's easy to bring your own food or purchase from one of the food vendors... it's all good. It's been fun to see the crowds increase this year as more people have discovered this jewel in the heart of downtown Arlington.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Encourage more food vendors to join J Gilligan's. Love what Gilligan's has done!

The Levitt Pavilion has provided a wonderful place for Arlington residents (and our neighbor cities too) to gather and listen to great live music, and meet with friends and family. Great music, nice people, easy parking, good food - come check it out for yourself!

What an awesome gift to the citizens around Arlington! Outdoor music concerts with artists ranging from rock to orchestra, and everywhere in between. The atmosphere is so relaxing and just fun to be there listening to artists you might not know. Always come away feeling the evening was enjoyable and relaxing!

Always well organized events. The staff is very helpful in keeping the crowds entertained and readily available for any questions, concerns and complaints that are usually resolved. Very happy with the entertainment that's been selected every year. The executive staff does an excellent job in presentation at the beginning of each show with all the how to's and dont's. And their hard work in finding sponsors for each concert is excellent.

Free Music Under The Stars is what the Levitt Pavilion Arlington, Texas delivers to my community! Citizens from every economic level come together and thoroughly enjoy the music on any given concert night, and may even share a short dance or big smile together. I have seen a homeless citizen clearly enjoying a concert and close to him is a couple with a picnic of wine and cheese. We are a strong community and the Levitt Pavilion Arlington is our much beloved musical venue!
