Park Policies

Welcome to the Concert!
Dave Hall Plaza is a city park and falls under the policies of the City of Dayton’s Parks & Recreation Department. For the enjoyment of all our Levitt Pavilion Dayton visitors who are here for a pleasant evening of music under the stars, please observe these rules during your visit:

What to Bring
To make the most of your evening at the Levitt Pavilion Dayton, bring a fun attitude, a lawn chair or blanket for relaxing, snacks or a picnic dinner. You might also want a hat, sunscreen, bug spray or other protection from Mother Nature. If it looks like rain, you might want a poncho or small 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 Pavilion Dayton’s Location
The Levitt Pavilion Dayton is located on Dave Hall Plaza 36 S Main St, Dayton, OH 45402

Seating
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. Also please do not put any kind of stakes in the lawn that might damage the sprinkler system.

Amenities

  • Bathrooms are provided on site.
  • Food vendors are available on site.

Accessibility
All of the parking lots around the Levitt Pavilion Dayton have designated handicapped parking. Ramps lead to the lawn on the Jefferson Street side of the park. All four entrances are wheelchair accessible. Wheelchairs can be parked all along the sidewalks or on the lawn.

Cell Phones
During the concert, please keep your phone in silent or vibrate mode. We love SnapChat Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and encourage you to Tweet and post about the performers and the fun you’re having during the show.  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.

Pets
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.

The Kids
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, interfering with 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.

Smoking
There is no smoking on the Levitt Pavilion Dayton lawn, including e-cigarettes or vapor cigarettes.

Rain
Dayton’s summer weather is unpredictable, and Levitt Pavilion Dayton concerts may be cancelled at the last minute due to lightning or bad weather. The first place to check on a concert’s status is on our website LevittDayton.org. Cancelled concerts and weather updates also are posted on the Levitt Pavilion Dayton’s Facebook page and Twitter.
