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.

I have been going to the Levitt since it started in 2008. I have had the please of being a volunteer for the past 2 years.

I get a thrill from seeing how the crowds have swelled over the years. The atmosphere is excited and has a small town feel in the middle of our of growing population. I hear many comments how wonderful it is to have FREE music provided to our community and how much the patrons enjoy coming to the Levitt.

The Levitt staff is passionate about the music artists that they bring to the Levitt. The staff is encouraging and appreciative of the volunteers who help out! I look forward to spending time at the Levitt.

The Levitt Pavilion Arlington continues to bring and hold the community together. It is really awesome to maintain a "small town" feel in such a growing city as Arlington, and the Levitt Pavilion is the center making this happen.

Volunteering at the Levitt gets better each year. The sense of community on the patch of lawn in the middle of downtown Arlington isn't something we see much anymore. And the music keeps getting better

Having the Levitt Pavilion in Arlington is great. It not only provides a wide selection of concerts for free, but the atmosphere is very family & pet friendly. If you're an Arlington resident, you're more than likely going to run into one of your neighbors. When you frequent the Levitt pretty often. you get to know the regular Leviteers. It's really helped bring some more focus on the Arlington downtown area and the surrounding businesses.

My wife and I are huge music fans and have been attending concerts at the Levitt since it opened in 2008! We love the music, the picnicking on the lawn, and the sense of community you get sitting with your friends (old and new) and neighbors in downtown Arlington!

We also love that the Levitt brings us 50 FREE shows every year! Not charging for shows allows any and everybody to come out and enjoy an evening out. Where else can you bring the whole family to enjoy a great night of music with your own picnic for no charge? Nowhere else that we know of!

No matter what you have to give, the Levitt gives to you! And that is why we live the Levitt!

The Levitt Pavilion Arlington is a wonderfully run organization with a great mission. Led by a tremendously capable executive director and staff, the Levitt is loved by tens of thousands in the community more and more each year. With it's mission of fifty free concerts "under the stars" - performed by amazing artists of virtually all genres, this downtown jewel has become THE city focal and gathering point bringing together friends and families over and over again. It's simply made itself essential to the community's quality of life.

The Arlington Levitt is just a tremendous nonprofit in so many ways. It serves as the key place to bring our community together for 50+ free concerts every year - "under the stars" - in our city's center. There are a growing number of touching personal stories of how the Levitt has really helped a great cross-section of Arlington's citizens engage and enjoy something affordable and so fun night after night. Then there's the catalyst this organization - with it's downtown venue - has served to reinvigorate our central/university district. Many new restaurants and businesses have come along since the opening of the Levitt 5 years ago - which is no coincidence! The Levitt has helped put a great new face on our town's center and provided more than a small piece of our community's pride. It's extremely well-run and efficient with it's fundraising and budgeting - the money goes where it needs to go to fulfill it's mission. I believe it's no exaggeration to say that from the mayor and city manager on down to us volunteers and the thousands of loyal patrons, everyone LOVES the Levitt!

Fantastic organization that brings the community of Arlington together in a fun and safe environment. There are not many non-profits that are run as effectively as the Arlington Levitt Pavilion, especially with the consistency in outstanding programming and fiscal responsibility.

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!

I first visited the Levitt in September 2010. Was pleased to find such a gem so close to home offering free concerts for all ages. Before concert season rolled around in Summer 2011, I signed up to be a volunteer. Best decision! The staff, crew, fellow volunteers and patrons make it such a joy. It is always a pleasure to introduce people to this venue and meet attendees who are discovering it for the first time.

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
