What to Bring
To make the most of your evening at the Levitt Pavilion, bring a fun attitude, a lawn chair or blanket for relaxing, snacks or a picnic dinner, and a cooler with beverages, including beer and wine (but no glass containers, please). You might also want a hat, sunscreen, bug spray or other protection from Mother Nature. If it looks like rain, you might want an umbrella. Don’t forget the most important thing – your family and friends for sharing the fun, the music, and most of all, the magic!
The Levitt’s Brock-Saxe Great Lawn
The Levitt Pavilion is located in Founders Plaza at 100 W. Abram St. on the corner of Abram and Center streets, directly across the street from City Hall.
The audience is seated on an open lawn, which is available on a first-come, first-served basis. Please arrive early to be sure that you get your favorite spot! Please do not set up tents, beach umbrellas or other coverings that will get in the way of others seeing the stage.
Bathrooms are provided on site or in City Hall across Abram Street. The City Hall bathrooms are open for your use 30 minutes before the concert starts. Please do not take food or drinks with you to City Hall.
Food vendors are available at the pavilion. J. Gilligan’s cooks burgers, veggie burgers, chicken, quesadillas and their world-famous Irish nachos and sells beer and wine. Bahama Buck’s has awesome snow cones, and Mad Mike’s has ice cream, homemade lemonade and kettle corn.
The Levitt Pavilion and Founders Plaza are easily accessible for physically challenged patrons. All of the parking lots around the Levitt have designated handicapped parking. Ramps lead to the lawn on the Abram Street side of the park. All four entrances are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs can be parked all along the sidewalks, on the lawn and on a concrete pad near the front of the stage on the right side of the lawn.
During the concert, please keep your phone in silent or vibrate mode. We love Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and encourage you to Tweet and post about the performers and the fun you’re having during the show. WiFi is available, but if you are using your laptop or tablet, please sit toward the rear of the lawn so that the light from your screen will not distract your fellow music lovers.
Your furry family members can come to the concert, but they must be on a leash and under your control at all times, well behaved, not aggressive or disruptive, and you must clean up after them. If a dog is aggressive or disruptive and spoils the concert experience for others, you will be asked to come back to enjoy a concert another time. Please also consider if the concert volume is appropriate for your dog’s sensitive ears.
All of the Levitt’s concerts are family friendly, and the Levitt lawn is a great place for the kids! Please be responsible for your children, and make sure they don’t disturb the people around you who are trying to enjoy the concert. Please also stop your kids from littering, destroying any of the park’s beautiful plants, and for their safety, please don’t let them climb on or around the large speakers at the front of the stage. Sometimes our children’s artists invite the kids up on the Levitt stage to dance and sing. We love that! But if your child is on the stage, please stay close by and keep them from getting too close to the edge. It’s a long way down! They sometimes also need mom and dad’s “encouragement” when it’s time to leave the stage.
There is no smoking on the Levitt Pavilion lawn, including e-cigarettes or vapor cigarettes. If you must smoke, please move across Abram Street to the sidewalk in front of City Hall or to the blue ash container in the middle of South Street.
Texas weather is unpredictable, and Levitt Pavilion concerts may be cancelled at the last minute due to lightning or bad weather. The first place to check on a concert status is the 24-hour Information Line at 817.543.4301. Cancelled concerts and weather updates also are posted on the Levitt’s Facebook page, Twitter, and finally, the website. It isn’t always possible to update the website quickly.
