The end of September brought the close of Levitt Pavilion Dayton‘s second season (and first full season) of free concerts. After a successful debut in 2018 with a shortened season of 33 concerts, Levitt returned in 2019 with a full summer lineup of 53 events for the community. According to Levitt’s statistics, the popular downtown amenity hosted 58,422 people on its lawn for the official concert schedule, and a total site attendance of nearly 73,000, including utilization of the facility by other community groups. Levitt official estimate that $5.4 million of programming was provided for the community, based on 2019 average ticket prices from pollstar.com, and that Levitt had a $1.5 million economic impact downtown, based on 1/3 of the audience spending $60 in a six-block radius. Levitt Pavilion also helps draw people downtown, as evidenced by the 109 unique zip codes represented among attendees this season. Watch for announcements of the 2020 concert schedule early next year at levittdayton.org.
