Bring free outdoor concerts to State College, PA!

Today's the last day to vote ❗

As a University town, downtown State College becomes quieter, and more focused on locals in the summer when a majority of the students leave, halving the population. Downtown businesses often struggle to survive through the summer. With the dramatic decrease in population during the summer, it can be difficult to sustain community building efforts.

Hosting the Levitt AMP [Your City] Music Series would bring critical and consistent energy back to our downtown during the summer months, spur economic activity, and give people a reason to visit!

How to Have More Fun - and why “showing up” is only the first step

"I left this Drag Show Flea Market themed event brimming with so many “Yep. This is how community should be!” vibes. (And, it should be noted, that as I drove past the blocked off section of Pugh on my way home, well after the event had officially ended, there were still people dancing in the street!)"

Two very cool things happened here in June. And these events (Happy Valley Restaurant Week and the first ever Pugh Street Shutdown) would have been great if I had solely participated in each as a regular attendee. I mean, let’s be honest. Trying creative new dishes
