The Venue
The American Tobacco Campus is arguably one of the top venues in the Triangle for enjoying an outdoor concert in an intimate and family-friendly atmosphere. Ample parking and five fine eateries surround the lawn: Tyler’s Taproom, Café Zen, Mellow Mushroom, Starbucks, and in spring 2009, Cuban Revolution.

Outdoor seating abounds and some restaurants take their grills to the sidewalk, so food and beverages are only steps away.

Kids are welcome on the lawn where families can enjoy the Ole Bull River that runs through the middle of the campus. As a courtesy to your neighbors, no dogs or coolers please.
