The concerts at the Levitt Shell are one of my favorite summer and fall activities. Admission is free. Bring a lawn chair or blanket and some cash to enjoy food truck cuisine and listen to a great concert.

We went to see the Memphis Dawls on a Friday night in September. We sat on the lawn and enjoyed a fun and relaxing evening of music.

We have been to Levitt Shell several times, once to watch the Grizzlies play and once to see a Lucero concert. Both experiences were great! It is very family friendly and wonderful for people watching. It's right beside Overton Park and this is a very trendy, safe, family friendly area in Memphis.

We attended one of the free concerts this summer. The weather was lovely especially for a summer night outdoors in Memphis. We brought chairs and a picnic dinner and enjoyed it before the concert started. A very lovely evening with family.

It was a nice outdoor place to visit. There is plenty of seating and it is easy to see those on the stage.
