Levitt at the Falls celebrates successful Community Appeals campaign

By 2019, Sioux Falls area residents and visitors will be treated with something few communities are able to experience-fifty free concerts each year performed by professional musicians from around the country.

Levitt at the Falls "Building Community Through Music," a Sioux Falls Area Chamber of Commerce-scheduled Community Appeals campaign held November 1, 2016- March 31, 2017, raised $1.138 million from the local business community. A pavilion will be constructed at Falls Park West along Phillips Avenue, which will be an ideal location as it provides a central gathering place for all residents. The national Levitt Foundation requires that the site for each venue be "accessible to all and acceptable to all."
