Dirt is being moved to make way for the new Levitt Pavilion Dayton, a state-of-the-art music venue in downtown Dayton. Friends of Levitt Pavilion Dayton announced Dayton-based Shook Construction was selected as general contractor for the Levitt Pavilion Dayton project. Construction began on Monday, January 8, with the goal of opening mid-summer 2018. The City of Dayton and the Friends of Levitt Pavilion Dayton are collaborating with the Dayton-Montgomery County Port Authority to manage the construction effort and stay within the construction budget of $5 million.
In August of 2017, the Friends of Levitt Pavilion Dayton announced that the project had reached its $5 million capital campaign goal. Later that month, the public was treated to a special sneak peek of the Levitt experience, as a ceremonial ground breaking was followed by a free preview concert. Levitt Pavilion is slated to open in 2018 with a partial season of about 30 performances, followed by at least 50 free programs per year in subsequent seasons. Levitt Pavilion Dayton community concerts will feature local, regional national and international musicians, with an emphasis on creative and diverse programming. When completed, it will become the eighth signature Levitt Pavilion nationwide.
