Attending a performance in the Amphitheatre

  • You are welcome to bring your own dinner, however since the amphitheatre is part of a City of Raleigh park, please adhere to these rules:
  • No open flames or candles (including citronella candles)
  • No glass bottles allowed
  • Only beer and wine purchased from our vendor may be brought into the amphitheatre.
  • The theatre reserves the right to check coolers for outside alcohol
  • Dogs are allowed but must be kept on leash and be well-behaved
  • Bringing blankets or chairs makes seating more comfortable. Lawnchairs or the folding chairs that come in a bag work well. There is grass between the concrete benches and chairs fit well in that space.
  • Indoor restroom facilities, which are handicap accessible, are available at the Main Stage Lobby Entrance. Port-a-potties, which are also handicap accessible, are located to the left of the stage near the handicap entrance.
  • The RLT parking lot will only be open to handicapped drivers. The RLT staff parking lot is only for handicapped drop-off only – no parking. You may park on the street where signposted.
