3. Total Eclipse of the Park

2024 is a special year, for not only is it a leap year, but it’s also the year of the Great North American Eclipse. The eclipse will trace across 13 U.S. states with Arlington scheduled to be in the path of totality for over 3 minutes! Join us on the Levitt lawn on Monday, April 8th, starting at 11:00 a.m. as we dance to a live DJ, enjoy a variety of food trucks, and tilt our head up to watch one of nature’s greatest sights, the total eclipse of the sun! Free solar eclipse glasses, courtesy of the City of Arlington’s Parks and Recreation Department, will be provided to the first 3,000 guests.

4. Juneteenth Celebration

The Levitt Pavilion’s heritage festivals began three years ago as a celebration of Arlington’s culturally diverse community and the University of Texas’s designation as the fifth most ethically diverse undergraduate university in the nation by U.S. News and Report. This year’s festivals continue this tradition, kickstarting with the Juneteenth Celebration on Saturday, June 15th starting at 4:00 p.m. The Levitt opens at 4:00 p.m. with music going grom from 5:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. There will be food trucks, vendors, and other activities around the lawn.

5. Free Concerts Galore

In addition to all these amazing signature events, the Levitt Pavilion’s normal schedule continues, featuring live music from all genres. The free concert series opens on May 3rd with artists Aaron Copeland and Jade Flores! Other artists include fan-favorites Grupo Fantasma, Jackie Venson, the Vandoliers, Jacob Stelly, Kaitlin Butts, Hayes Carll, Lone Star Skynyrd, and many, many more.
