Levitt Pavilion Denver is a non-profit established with the purpose of building community through music. We believe in embracing the local, including the musicians, architects, construction company, staff, artists and sponsors. Levitt Pavilion Denver is more than just another music venue – it is a nexus for local non-profits and arts groups across the Rocky Mountain region. When complete in 2017, Levitt Pavilion Denver will feature:
Outside of Levitt Pavilion Denver concert series, the state-of-the-art amphitheater will be available for use by schools, arts organizations, outside promoters and other non-profits.

Starting in 2016, Levitt Pavilion Denver will be producing a introductory concert series in Civic Center Park in conjunction with Civic Center Conservancy. This teaser concert series will consist of five Friday night performances featuring acclaimed artists including Denver's own Flobots and four acts who have previously graced the stages of the other Levitt sites across the United States.
When officially open in July 2017, Levitt Pavilion Denver will be Denver’s next great outdoor amphitheater, producing 50 free concerts each summer in Ruby Hill Park, just minutes from Downtown Denver. Levitt Pavilion Denver is a public/private partnership between the City and County of Denver & Levitt Pavilion Denver, and will be operated by Friends of Levitt Pavilion Denver, a local non-profit with a mission to build community through music by creating an outdoor living room in one of Denver’s most beautiful and under-utilized parks.
Levitt Pavilion Denver will be the seventh Levitt Pavilion in the U.S. Other locations include Westport, CT, Bethlehem, PA, Memphis, TN, Arlington, TX, Pasadena, CA and Los Angeles, CA. When not used for the 50 free concerts, the facility will be permitted to outside promoters, non-profits, and corporations. Admission-based events will also be allowed, and the City of Denver will own and maintain the building. Friends of Levitt Pavilions Denver will operate the facility and program the annual concert series.
Levitt Pavilion Denver will be the first 100% free cultural venue in Denver. This invaluable asset to concertgoers and musicians alike, Levitt Pavilion Denver will provide increased access to the arts. With the average cost of U.S. concert tickets skyrocketing to $69.52 in 2014 (according to Pollstar), the amphitheater will donate the equivalent of $26,070,000 of free music each year! The amphitheater will also act as a launching pad for local artists, exposing them to audience sizes eclipsing those of local bars and indoor venues. Emerging Colorado based musicians will be paid above current local scale and half of the concerts will be dedicated to those Colorado-based acts, with the rest featuring emerging national and international groups.
Levitt Pavilion Denver presents more than 50 free concerts a year with a diverse calendar of professional artists, from Colorado-based acts to emerging national and international musicians. We believe in the power of music and work to present the Levitt audiences with quality music acts. Levitt Pavilion Denver is a launchpad where you can hear tomorrows stars today!
