If you are considering moving to The Research Triangle, reach out of us and we would happily offer more reasons to love The Triangle and why we think it is the best place to call home.

Few things really usher in Summer like an outdoor concert in The Triangle. We have gathered some of the top outdoor concert series for you to enjoy the best local venues, beverages, foods and of course music. It is unusual for new pop ups and breweries to not be involved where local music is, so this will cover both. One of the things that is really special about some of these series is that they run all summer long and are sponsored by really great organizations. If you are new to the area and were looking to meet people and get involved, we highly recommend concert series. Looking for a home in one of these areas? Feel free to browse homes on our site.

Summer 2021 is looking a lot more normal in The Triangle with new restaurants popping up, live music bookings, baseball games, and much more. North Carolina is one of the best places to enjoy summer from the Outerbanks to The Blue Ridge Mountains, and of course the varied culture and events throughout the Research Triangle area. People are keeping closer to home this summer, but most have an itch to get outside, so these events are focused on enjoying the outdoors, food and drink, sports, and music. If you have a suggestion, please leave us a comment! Whether you are a summer resident coming to town from Cashiers, or you are heading in for a Bulls game from Cape Hatteras, here are some of the best events "in town."
