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: Cuban Revolution, L’Uva, Tyler’s Taproom, Mellow Mushroom Pizza Bakers, Tobacco Road Sports Cafe and Saladelia.

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.

The Back Porch Music Series is one of several FREE summer events at American Tobacco. Under the umbrella of the On the Lawn Presented by University Ford & Kia and Bull City Bucks line-up, the Back Porch Music Series joins Movies on the Lawn; Pops for Pops on Father’s Day; and the new features Jazz on the Lawn and Dance on the Lawn.
