Discover Downtown Middlesboro works to spearhead revitalization of our downtown area. This is accomplished through the help of our amazing community volunteers.
In rural Appalachia many families don’t have the opportunity to attend concerts in nearby cities. Levitt AMP is a matching grant program that brings free live concerts to communities for all to enjoy.
Middlesboro is honored to win the Levitt AMP grant for the fourth year in a row, thanks to the support of our community in the voting stage. Now we have an opportunity to win A Community Thrives grant! The organization that raises the most money through crowdfunding will win a $25,000 grant for their wellness, education or arts and culture project. Our project is the Levitt AMP concert series and Middlesboro Farmer's Market. Additionally 7 more Tier 1 organizations will be chosen for a grant ranging from $10,000 up to 100,000!!! $ Could Middlesboro be the winner? Help us get there!
You can donate any amount! From $5 to $500 or more! Every little bit helps! All donations must be made through this Crowdrise platform to count towards the possibility of winning the grant.
The Levitt AMP Middlesboro Music Series has become known locally as the premier public event of the summer and will return to downtown Middlesboro this summer for 10 consecutive weeks showcasing exceptional live music through free concerts for our community! Our hope is that our Levitt Lawn will become the premier gathering place for our community throughout the year as a creative place for arts and culture.
With your help, we can raise the needed money to help support DDM, leverage the Levitt AMP Grant and raise the funds needed to continue to revitalize downtown Middlesboro through arts and culture projects for our community, and continue making Middlesboro a great place to live, work and play.
Some of DDM's most recent projects include the start of a Farmer’s Market, the Magic City Christmas Parade and most notably the Levitt AMP Concert Series.
