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.
