Charitable & Community Events


DPAC loves hosting charitable and community events, but unfortunately our calendar has very few open dates. In a typical year, the touring shows we host will use 250 to 300 days.


Each year DPAC selects one open date per quarter, (four per year) to waive rental charges and host special charitable and community events. Proposals for these open dates are accepted on an ongoing basis, year-round.


Please note that preference is given to existing events that have an established track record in the region of drawing a large audience and being able to produce a high-quality event.


Past events include Durham Public Schools Evening of Entertainment benefitting the DPS Scholarship Fund, Nashville Songwriters at DPAC benefitting Kidznotes, the Reality Ministries Talent Show, and Durham 150’s Sesquicentennial Closing Celebration for Durham’s 150th birthday.
