I have reaped the rewards and enjoyed the excellent music brought to the city of Arlington for our free entertainment by The Friends of Levitt Pavilion since it began. This organization works so hard to find donors to cover the costs involved with this endeavor. This is a venue where everyone can come out and enjoy a music filled evening for FREE! 50 concerts a year! They can bring their children, pets, lawn chairs, blankets, picnic baskets, beverages of choice, etc. and have a wonderful time without spending a dime if they don't want to. There are also food, beverage, and snack items that can be purchased and it's always nice if you bring a little cash to put in the donation buckets but nothing is mandatory except that if you come you WILL have a good time. 2016 started out with an bang with the amazing band Blood, Sweat, and Tears featuring Bo Bice! I never would have believed I could see this type of class act at NO COST! Way to go Levitt Pavilion! I will see you for many years to come!

Music at the Levitt is our new family tradition since moving to Arlington. Excellent quality musicians, a great space to hang out with the family and community, and it's fantastic that it's free. I LOVE that even when times are fiscally tight for us, we can take our family of five out for an evening and live to tell the tale. This is a wonderful community resource!!

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!
