Came for Mardi gras recently, nice setting. Live music and the locals seemed really willing to get into Mardi gras and dress up. Lots of little kids activities too. The glass jug beer lab put a tent out and sold drinks from there as well as their brick and mortar nearby. Cool spot.

The EWF Tribute was Amazing!!! The band had everyone on their feet the entire time! Hits like fantasy, let’s groove and September had the place rocking! The venue was nice clean and spacious enough for everyone to enjoy themselves! I’ll be back for sure.

Summer open air music and food truck event was great. If you go, bring some lawn chairs or blankets to sit on. The food options were plentiful and delicious. You could even bring your own picnic if you prefer. Finding good parking can be challenging but not impossible. I think these events are the first Friday evening of each month during the summer. We had a nice time with friends and family. The event was free except for the food and drinks we purchased. 👍🏽

This is a very nice part of Durham. You are right in the heart of downtown. A plethora of eateries and on Wednesday nights you can catch the Farmers Market and on Saturday mornings! Def a lot of vendors on Saturday mornings and the endless choices that are available at the prices you just can’t beat. Come on down and see for yourself what a great area this is if you’ve never been!

I love the events that the Durham Central Park has on the regular, specially the summer concert series. I haven't had so much fun in awhile. The dj playing music before and after the artist was the cherry on top.
Support, donate or volunteer so they can keep bringing more amazing things to our city.

Excellent, freeoutdoor summer concerts and variety of food trucks. All genres of music represented. Bring your lawn chairs and be prepared for an entertaining evening of live bands. Each concert ends in the crowd-pleasing Electric Slide. The night I attended, a Soul Train Line capped off the evening with a DJ spinning tunes from the 70s to current hip hop. Something for everyone. Diverse crowd. Racially diverse and people of all ages. Safe environment. Just a wholesome, good time. Mark your calendar for next summer's Friday concerts. You won't regret it.

Cool area of downtown that was hosting a concert when we were there. We didn’t find it to be very big but it was a nice centralized park area with a playground, cover for farmers market, nearby restaurants, and grassy areas.

I really had a good time at the Juneteenth event, fashion show could’ve been more prompt. There was a singer, idk who she was; she announced herself but, the sound on the lawn wasn’t great. Other than that, keep up the good work guys. (Just add a couple speakers to the lawn so the ones sitting in the shade could enjoy)

Farmers' Market here is excellent. Plenty of fresh produce, flowers, pastries and breads from local shops, eggs, cheeses, meats...and a little bit of everything else. Great little diversion on a Saturday morning.
I know they sometimes have other events here as well but I mainly patronize the Farmers' Market.
Hot tip: there's a big parking lot off Morris St right around the corner....a very short walk away and much easier than hunting for street parking right next to it.

I had a wonderful experience at the Home Depot. The website was accurate as to the amount of the products that I needed and the location in the store. The employees were extremely willing to help when I needed. They were also available to help me load my items into my car. This will definitely be my go to Home Improvement store.

It’s always a fun time at the park whether there is a festival or market! The food hall is also right there which makes for a nice day out to grab some food and enjoy the park.

Nice international festival with vendors. Not super crowded. Music, drummers and other performers. Easy to set up your own chair and take advantage of the good weather. There were a couple of food trucks and some drink stations. Had a great time.
