The Levitt Pavilion Pasadena presents an annual summer series of 50 free music concerts, under the stars, at the historic Memorial Park band shell in the heart of Old Pasadena. This year marks our sixth season. To date, we have provided the community with 240 outstanding concerts, bringing people from all walks of life together to enjoy a shared evening of great music, beautiful weather, a warm and friendly ambience, and a true feeling of community. Designed to appeal to people of all ages, backgrounds and tastes, our summer festival entertains audiences of over 35,000 each year.

Concerts at the Levitt Pavilion are made possible in part by the Pasadena Arts & Culture Commission and the City of Pasadena Cultural Affairs Division. The Friends of the Levitt Pavilion are also supported in part by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission. Visit our sponsors page to learn more about the exceptional organizations that support our work.

The Friends Of The Levitt Pavilion Pasadena
In 2002, the Mortimer Levitt Foundation granted the City of Pasadena funds to transform the neglected Memorial Park band shell into a top-quality venue suitable for professional performances. The historic gold shell had been a beloved site for community gatherings, sing-a-longs, and concerts in the 1930s and 40s, but had not been in use since the 70s. A group of dedicated Pasadena residents soon came together as the Friends of the Levitt Pavilion Pasadena, to see the renovation through and develop an annual concert series for the site. Our mission is to enrich family values, encourage community spirit, promote respect for diversity, and enhance appreciation for the arts by providing free public access to outstanding music performances.

Background of The Levitt Pavilions
The Mortimer Levitt Foundation (MLF), created in 1966 by New York philanthropists Mortimer and Mimi Levitt, donates funds to support performing arts venues that build communities, support diversity, and enhance access to the arts. The Levitt Foundation has a strong commitment to contribute to the well being of families through the arts in a learning and entertainment environment outdoors. The Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts in Pasadena is modeled after the original Levitt Pavilion in Westport, Connecticut, which has been providing free entertainment for the community there for over 30 years. A new Levitt Pavilion opened last year in MacArthur Park in Los Angeles, California, and two new pavilions open this year in Memphis, Tennessee and Arlington, Texas. Negotiations are underway for a possible venue in Long Beach, California.
