Since its opening night in 2008, there has been only one thing missing from the Levitt experience — easily accessible bathrooms. To celebrate 10 years of free music under the stars, Levitt Pavilion Arlington is raising funds to add permanent, air-conditioned, handicapped-accessible restrooms plus a hospitality suite and viewing deck. Adding bathrooms will greatly benefit the more than 100,000 residents, area visitors and tourists who attend concerts and family movie nights each year. Having bathrooms and a hospitality center will make the Levitt more appealing to sponsors, donors and those interested in using the pavilion for events and festivals, which will bring more visitors to Downtown Arlington as well as add to existing city activities, like the Holiday Lights Parade and the Fourth of July Parade. The Levitt has proven itself to be a valuable city asset. Adding bathrooms will only make it better!
The estimate for the hospitality center and permanent bathrooms is about $2 million (plumbing infrastructure and electricity relocation and additions are the bulk of the cost). The Levitt has raised about $1.8 million. Plans are to break ground after the 2018 concert season ends in October and begin construction for the 2019 concert season.
Since it opened, Levitt Pavilion Arlington has attracted more than 100,000 people a year to see more than 50 free, culturally diverse concerts. The Levitt presents professional musical artists who are often Grammy Award winners and Latin Grammy Award winners. The Levitt makes live music and the arts accessible to those families who could not afford to enjoy live music if they had to purchase a ticket. The free concerts are made possible through sponsorships, grants and donations, including passing buckets among the crowd on the lawn after each concert.
