ARLINGTON, Texas (CBSDFW.COM) – The Levitt Pavilion Arlington will resume full capacity, free outdoor concerts this weekend. The season runs May 7-July 18, then resumes September 3-October 10, on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays. Concerts begin at 7 p.m. with a 45-minute opening act featuring top-tier local DFW artists.

Although the Levitt is permitting full-capacity guest attendance this season, other COVID-19 protocols remain in place, such as mandatory masks for Levitt personnel and sanitization stations throughout the venue. Levitt guests are encouraged to wear masks when visiting high-traffic and common spaces, such as the facility’s restrooms.
