I have been coming and volunteering at this wonderful venue since its inception. The entire staff is great, the variety of music is awesome and the patrons love each and every performance. What a great place to bring family and friends to enjoy music under the stars. Bring a picnic, any drinks you care for in plastic containers and have a wonderful free evening of entertainment. If you have not visited the Levitt, you just don't know what you are missing.

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!

I absolutely love the Levitt Pavilion, Arlington!!! I enjoy meeting my friends and family to listen to the many different styles of music. I love watching my grandchildren
dancing to the beat, as well as watching them Experience the circus. I also enjoy some evenings going to the Levitt alone, just listening to the music on a warm summer night. I am so thankful that the city I live in has this treasure.

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

Provide popcorn

This is by far the best that Arlington has to offer. In its 6th year and the groups get better. For the musicians it is a must venue to spread their name. For the guests, it is a relaxing and entertaining place for friends, family, or just the music lover. It builds a since of community, something that every city needs.

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

Donate more money.

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!

I've been volunteering at the Levitt since its first full season and think it is one of the most enjoyable places on the planet. Great music, great staff, great patrons, and great volunteers.

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

Offer even more free concerts!

We love the Levitt!! A perfect place to meet up with friends to enjoy a variety of FREE concerts! It is a lovely park venue, a safe family environment, and provides wonderful exposure to the Arts. The Levitt has been a great addition to Arlington and has been a catalyst for much development in the downtown area. The staff and volunteers are exceptional in all ways!

My family loves the Levitt Pavilion, it's a great place to hear live music from many different genres. I have found many new artists to love and listen to because the Levitt Pavilion staff and volunteers work so diligently to bring quality entertainment to Arlington.

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

I would post donation buckets near exits so that those who didn't get a chance to donate would have one last chance if they wanted to still give. I would also like to see more vendors.
