The Levitt AMP Trenton Music Series will be held for ten consecutive Thursdays from 5 p.m. – 8 p.m. from June 27 through September 5 in Mill Hill Park 165 E. Front St, Downtown Trenton.
This year’s series 10-week FREE family-friendly entertainment features a variety of genres chosen to appeal to the diverse community here in Trenton and beyond. With the support of New Jersey Manufacturers Insurance Co. and the NJ State Council on the Arts, popular headline musical acts have been tapped from all over the United States and recognized local performers from New Jersey. These free concerts are open to the public, and we encourage families to join us throughout the series and bring your blankets and/or lawn chairs!
The Mortimer & Mimi Levitt Foundation named Trenton, New Jersey as one of 18 small to mid-sized towns and cities across America to win a Levitt AMP Trenton Grant Award of $25K in matching funds to present a free concert series at Mill Hill Park in 2019. TDA submitted the grant proposal and is presenting the concert series. In an effort to inspire and engage communities across the country around the power of creative placemaking, the Levitt Foundation invited the public to choose the Top 25 finalists through online voting. Learn more about the winners and the 180 free Levitt AMP concerts across America at http://levittamp.org. Of those 18 cities, three cities were awarded a multi-year commitment to fund the Series until 2021 by the Levitt Foundation and Trenton was one of them. This is the fifth consecutive year that Trenton qualified for a grant from the foundation. Thank you to everyone who supported us over the years! We look forward again to providing our community with free, outdoor live music this summer.
