Featuring Live music from Matt Phillips, XOXOK, and Loamlands

June 18, 6 – 9 pm
This experience is great for guests of all ages!

Join us for an evening of live music and exploration as we celebrate the upcoming arrival of the summer season! Let nature guide you through some of our most popular outdoor spaces and enjoy the musical elements from some of North Carolina’s most talented artists.

Visit our Explore the Wild exhibit and say hello to the black bears and red wolves who call the Museum home. Take a relaxing stroll around our wetland environment or Dinosaur Trail. As the sun begins to set, make your way to our Into the Mist and Earth Moves exhibits for beautiful photo-ops. Wherever you wander, you’ll have no trouble getting into the groove.

Light snacks and ice cream are available for purchase at Sprout Café. Beer and wine will be available for purchase at our pop-up bar for guests 21+. Tickets for this event are limited. Guests two and under are free with a paying adult. Dancing is encouraged!
