The Greensboro Coliseum Complex has announced its new outdoor amphitheatre will debut this summer.
The White Oak Amphitheatre will be located on the southern end of the Greensboro Coliseum Complex property and feature a seating capacity of 7,688, including more than 2,000 reserved seats.
White Oak Amphitheatre will host a diverse selection of community events, music, arts and crafts and festival type events. The venue will also support entertainment at the annual Central Carolina Fair. The first announced event for the venue is the 37th annual Fun Fourth Festival finale on Monday, July 4, which includes a pops concert and fireworks spectacular.
The name White Oak was selected in honor of the tree being the City of Greensboro’s official tree and that the lush landscaping that will surround the venue’s seating area will include a selection of white oaks.
“The White Oak Amphitheatre will be a wonderful addition to the City of Greensboro and the Greensboro Coliseum Complex,” said Greensboro Coliseum Complex managing director Matt Brown. “Our City does not currently have an outdoor amphitheater with this seating capacity and this will allow us to serve the community with an even greater variety of concerts and other events. The interest from promoters and event organizers in booking the facility is extremely high.”
The traditional amphitheatre season is a six-month schedule of events running from May through October.
Concession carts and other amenities will be provided on site to support guests’ needs and patron parking will be available in the adjacent lots that also service the Coliseum Complex.
