Did You Know: Levitt Shell Free Music Concert Series

At Overton Park, in the heart of Midtown sits the Levitt Shell. This outdoor stage, built in the 1930’s, hosts more than 50 free concerts and events every year. Mahaffey Tent & Party Rentals is extremely fond of the Free Music Concert Series that runs from May through July every year.

FREE performances include national and international touring musicians from all over. Every night, between Thursday and Sunday, you can grab your lawn chairs and head to the Shell to enjoy food, drinks and entertainment.

Not only do these concerts bring our wonderful community together, but they also promote art throughout the city. If you would like to support the Levitt Shell, consider choosing one of these four different ways to get involved: make a donation, become a sponsor (like Mahaffey!), be a Levitt Shell Star or volunteer.

Since its opening in 1936, the Shell has been center stage for making history. A date of some significance on the Levitt Shell calendar was July 30, 1954, when Elvis Presley took the stage as an act. The show was deemed the “first-ever rock and roll show” by music historians.

So join Mahaffey at the concerts, and enjoy an evening alfresco!
