Arts & Entertainment

Boundless talent. Unapologetic creativity.

We’ve got the largest performing arts stage between DC and Atlanta;
Festivals many years old and weeks long;
Otherwise boring electrical boxes, parking garages, and tobacco warehouses… painted by local artists telling generations of history. Even our natural green spaces serve as backdrops for dancers, singers, poets, and creators.

This is where baseball is as wonderful a pastime as strolling through the Sarah P. Duke Gardens, where our karaoke and trivia nights are rivaled only by electric parades and rooftop gatherings. Intrigue is uncovered on spontaneous Saturday morning bike tours and acoustic sidewalk performances. Durham’s event calendar isn’t for the faint of heart.

Behind iron and brick lay the perfect place for canvas and sculpture – parted theatre curtains reveal the stages upon which you’re welcome to witness talent uniquely ours as well as world-class acts inspired to perform in Durham. Every inch of our cityscape and outdoor spaces are where you, too, can take part in creating your own magic and take in the magic of others. Concerts. Fairs. Festivals. Film. Discover the vibe of a community steeped in boundaries pushed with beauty always on display.
