Parties for the Park

Durham Central Park is the heartbeat of downtown, with its Farmers' Market twice a week, summer concerts, food truck rodeos and all kinds of special events throughout the year. The five-acre park is owned by the city, but is managed, developed and programmed by Durham Central Park Inc, a nonprofit organization, donations, grants and program and rental income.

Durham Central Park is about to start its biggest fund raising campaign of the year called Parties For the Park.

This year there will be 20 parties from September 7 through November 3 at locations throughout Durham. Tickets go on sale August 23.
