Duke Performances

Music in the Gardens

Duke Performances’ Music in the Gardens concerts are held every summer on a stage on the lawn of Sarah P. Duke Gardens, and often feature local indie rock bands and musicians from a range of American vernacular traditions.

Music in the Gardens concerts take place on the lawn behind the Doris Duke Center. Lawn chairs, picnics, and blankets are encouraged. Pets are not allowed. Outside food and beverages, including beer and wine, are permitted. The lawn will open at least 30 minutes prior to the start of the performance. University parking at the Gardens is $2/hour until 7 p.m.

In the event of rain, an alternate location will be announced by 3 p.m. on the day of the event.
