Levitt on the Lawn

Levitt on the Lawn is a free outdoor concert series held on the lawns of Scripps College that aims to build community through music by offering a variety of genres performed by established and emerging artists. The series is supported by the Levitt Foundation, a nonprofit headed by Scripps alum Liz Levitt Hirsch ‘74. Levitt Hirsch studied music history during her time at Scripps, and she has carried that passion with her to this day; the Levitt Foundation’s funded venues and awards harness the power of musical performance to strengthen the social fabric of communities and foster equity, diversity, and inclusion. 

Join us for our upcoming family-friendly events, where you can relax, grab a bite to eat from the food trucks, and enjoy live music performances in a festive atmosphere.
