When completed in 2018, Levitt Pavilion Dayton on Dave Hall Plaza will join the ranks as the eighth outdoor Levitt music venue.

Be a part of Dayton's bold new vision.

Levitt Pavilion Dayton is a brilliant opportunity that will offer countless ways for our community to come together. This new, state-of-the art outdoor music venue, presenting 50 free Levitt concerts every year, will provide a welcoming gathering space for all, strengthening the social fabric of our region, one concert at a time.

Alongside cities such as Denver, Pasadena, Los Angeles, Memphis, and Houston, the redevelopment of Dave Hall Plaza into the site of Levitt Pavilion Dayton will create a vibrant anchor venue for all Daytonians, serving as a catalyst for further development and economic growth.
