Know Before You Go

It’s All About the Experience

We’re known for our stars but famous for our hospitality. World-class hospitality with an attention to detail that surpasses any other live entertainment venue in the region. Friendly smiles and warm greetings are just the start of a philosophy that follows the golden rule where we treat each guest just how we would like to be treated.

Please use this section of our website to plan your evening, where you’ll park, where to dine or have drinks, even where you’ll stay if you are visiting from another city. We want your visit to DPAC to be seamless and among your best live event experiences ever. Your first visit might be to see your favorite superstar, but you’ll come back again and again for the legendary DPAC experience.

For your safety, all guests and their bags are subject to inspection before entry. 

  • Firearms and/or Concealed Handguns, with or without a concealed handgun permit, are NOT permitted at DPAC. If any guest arrives at the facility with a firearm or handgun, you will be instructed to return the weapon to your car. DPAC does not have a weapons check-in, and we will not take possession of firearms under any circumstances.
  • The only persons allowed to bring firearms into DPAC are credentialed DURHAM POLICE DEPARTMENT (DPD) OFFICERS IN GOOD STANDING. If you are an off-duty DPD Officer, please check in with one of the Durham Police Department Officers working at the DPAC Event to verify your credentials before entering DPAC. Please note that if our Durham Police Officers have any doubts or concerns, their decision on your ability to carry inside the building is final.
