Levitt Pavilion Denver to host 50 free, family friendly outdoor concerts this summer

Posted at 2:28 PM, Apr 06, 2022

Levitt Pavilion Denver’s Free Summer Concert Series will include 50 shows in Ruby Hill Park this summer. Levitt Pavilion Denver continues to build community through music with their continued support of local musicians, career development programs, and increasing access to the arts through their free concert series. Denver7 is a proud supporter of the Levitt Pavilion Denver Free Summer Concert Series.

“After experiencing a year without live music in 2020, then an extremely arduous but gratifying comeback season in 2021, we are thrilled to enter our fifth season of providing free, family-friendly outdoor concerts where our friends and neighbors can reconnect,” said Chris Zacher, executive director and founder of Levitt Pavilion Denver. “We’re not just putting on free concerts, we’re working to put on some of the best concerts around period.”

Levitt Pavilion Denver’s 2022 free concert season will begin on May 13th and run through early October. VIP tickets are now on sale, and free RSVP will open a month before concert dates. RSVP is not required to attend free concerts, but is highly encouraged.

Levitt Pavilion Denver is also hosting a fundraiser to try to support this summer's concert series. Donations to support Levitt can be made at levittdenver.org.
