Levitt Pavilion Dayton will be an anchor destination to drive redevelopment in downtown Dayton’s urban core.
Imagine a downtown Dayton that is bustling with people of all ages and backgrounds, coming together to experience free concerts under the stars and celebrating a shared sense of community. Levitt Pavilion Dayton will be the anchor destination that infuses new energy into the downtown core, strengthening the social fabric of our city and driving further investment and redevelopment.
Other cities with Levitt venues have experienced a rise in new restaurants, cafes, shops and other business activity in the areas surrounding the music pavilion due to the tens of thousands of people (some venues report season attendance exceeding 100,000) who come for the free concerts. When the Levitt concerts aren’t in season, the venue is available for use by non-profits and other community groups for events and celebrations, further driving people to the area from throughout the metropolitan region.
Equally important is the heightened sense of community pride generated by a Levitt Pavilion—because the concerts are free, everyone is welcome to experience high caliber performing arts in a beautiful public space, open to all.
