Catch a Concert in the Nation's Largest Museum Park

The summer concerts at NCMA represent one of the Triangle's longest-running and most selective outdoor music series. Grab a seat in the expansive stone amphitheater and soak up the energy.

Each year when summer draws near, the NCMA amphitheater plays host to a summer-long music festival that features some of the world's finest singer-songwriters and outstanding musical ensembles from around the world. Throughout the series, thousands will grab a seat on the beautiful stone or on the surrounding lawn, soak in the setting sun and enjoy the sounds wafting from the nation's largest museum venue. From June until September, you'll find a mix of Grammy winners and world class musicians hitting the stage. Pack a blanket, a picnic and get ready for an enchanting night out at the NCMA.

Select food and drink items are available for purchase on site.
