The Levitt Pavilion Arlington has become the heart of the city. The expertise and passion of the staff, crew and volunteers is clear. We all have become family. I look forward to participating in the fall.

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!

The Levitt in Arlington has a wonderful variety of music and it's all free! The music starts when the sun goes down, so it's much cooler out to enjoy . Families come out and bring their pets. The kids get up and dance! Very enjoyable!

The Levitt is such a wonderful place to volunteer for. The staff is amazing and our guests are the best! It's always nice to look out and see all the friends and families on the lawn, ready for an evening under the stars listening to great music! It's truly the best thing Arlington has done. Cheers to the Levitt Foundation and the City of Arlington! Rock on!

This is the most awesome non profit I have ever been exposed too. It brings all cultures together to enjoy very high quality musicians. You can bring your own chair and cooler or purchase food and drinks at the concert. The best thing about all this is that it is totally free to the listener. I've watched it grow from the first year of 5-7 thousand people to over 100,000 and climbing. Nothing better than free music under the stars.

The Levitt Pavilion is the best outdoor music venue in Arlington. It's a great cultural experience for the entire family. You can bring your own food, drinks, chairs or a blanket and enjoy a night of music under the stars. Or just swing by and purchase your food and drinks from a variety of local vendors.

Levitt Pavilion Arlington is one of the best things going on in Arlington. We are so fortunate to have free music. Ticket prices and service charges for concerts are so expensive that even people with decent jobs can't afford them. The Levitt allows EVERYONE to enjoy a concert free. Even if they donate a few dollars, it is still so much more affordable!!! So many genres are included each season. There is music for everyone. The Levitt staff is the most professional I have ever seen work a concert or plan a concert! Patti and her staff know how to use the funds efficiently, so the dollar goes much further. Music is a healer to depression, sickness and anything else you can think of for people. Levitt Arlington is AWESOME I am so proud to have this in my city! I love going to the concerts with my own snacks and drinks!
