Attending events in the Amphitheatre

Since the amphitheatre is part of a City of Raleigh park, please adhere to the following rules:

  • You are welcome to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages
  • Only beer and wine purchased on site may be brought into the amphitheatre
  • The theatre reserves the right to check coolers for outside alcohol
  • No open flames or candles (including citronella candles)
  • No glass bottles allowed
  • Dogs are allowed but must be kept on a leash and be well-behaved

Bringing blankets or chairs makes seating more comfortable. Lawn chairs or folding chairs work well. There is grass between the concrete benches, and chairs fit well in that space.

Indoor restroom facilities, which are wheelchair accessible, are available at the Main Stage lobby entrance. Porta-johns, which are also wheelchair accessible, are located to the left of the stage near the ramp.

The RLT parking lot will only be open to vehicles with disability parking placards as well as limited parking in the front half of the lot for anyone. The RLT staff parking lot is only for drop off of patrons with wheelchairs or mobility issues – no parking. You may park on the street where signposted.
