Big things are coming to St. James Park...

The Levitt Pavilion project is being proposed for development to bring free, live entertainment in an open-lawn setting to the historic park.

This project has also revitalized parks in several cities around the country — including Los Angeles, Arlington, Denver, and more — hosting 50+ free concerts year-round. 🌳

The total cost is expected to be ~$63.9 million, and so far, $10 million has been raised. At the end of next month, City Council will review the project to decide to move forward with construction. 👀

The shows will have food trucks + a beer garden with Camino Brewing Co., but seating is BYO blanket.
