The lawn has undergone a $1.5 million renovation since October and now features a permanent amphitheater, according to the city’s website.

“The renovation of the Lawrenceville Lawn will provide expanded facilities and a beautiful permanent stage for the community to enjoy our popular concert series,” Mayor David Still said in a statement. “Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, our concert series was moved to the fall due to the Lawn renovations. We are thrilled to reopen the Lawrenceville Lawn with a premiere concert and fireworks after canceling our traditional July fireworks event in support of public health.”

The Live at the DTL concert series will take place in September and  October.
