Royalties from this event benefit Equality NC

Equality NC is turning 40 this year, making it the oldest equality organization in the country fighting for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) rights and protections. Equality NC initially was formed as a defense fund at a time when no one else would stand up for the rights of LGBTQ people. Four decades later, Equality has been an intimate part of that change in making this state a more equitable and safe place for the LGBTQ community.  


This event is part of the worldwide celebration #BersteinAt100. Learn more about participating organizations and events here.

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 wheelchair accessible, are available at the Main Stage lobby entrance. Port-a-potties, 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. 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.
