*2017 Levitt AMP Winner

The Levitt AMP Ocala Music Series returned for a second year in a row and once again elevated the Webb Field at the Ocala Martin Luther King Jr. Recreational Complex—an underused space located in the once-thriving neighborhood of West Ocala—capitalizing upon the momentum built the previous year, and bringing awareness to the neighborhood’s rich history and ongoing revitalization efforts, while providing a dynamic space for the community to come together.

Presented by the Marion Cultural Alliance (MCA), a nonprofit catalyst and advocate for cultural impact in the Ocala community in partnership with the City of Ocala.
