The Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts

Outdoor Performance Venue


Already a formidable presence in Westport’s summer entertainment scene, the Levitt Pavilion for the Performing Arts hopes to increase its reach both to an increased audience and much sought after talent through the creation of its state-of-the-art, brand new pavilion. If the July 20th grand re-opening with a performance by Jose Feliciano was any indication, the venue is well on its way to continued success.

The much improved pavilion incorporates an outdoor performance venue, open air lawn seating, canopied stage with state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems, and enclosures for backstage dressing areas, storage and lounge spaces. The entrance to the facility includes a two-level building for concessions as well as indoor restrooms. Additionally, improvements to the park area include lush river walks and picnic groves for pre-concert activities.

Kohler Ronan completed extensive mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection design services for this outdoor performance venue located along the Saugatuck River. We were subsequently engaged a second time to provide comprehensive commissioning services for the venue.
