Oak City 7 and Pickin' in the Plaza are downtown Raleigh's premier summer concert series.  

Located in the heart of downtown on Fayetteville Street in City Plaza, admission is free to the public, all summer long.  View the printable schedule here!

Our summer concert series includes 14 concert festivals that take place every Thursday from 5pm to 10:30pm, from Memorial Day to Labor Day.  Pickin' in the Plaza kicks off the summer and takes place every over Thursday, with Oak City 7 playing the weeks in between.

Starting Summer 2016, Oak City 7 will feature all local North Carolina bands, pulling from all genres of music for one rockin' concert series.  Pickin' in the Plaza will continue its partnership with PineCone to feature the best bluegrass and traditional musicians from across the nation.

Produced by Deep South Entertainment, our summer concert series is 100% sponsor driven and does not utilize any taxpayer money.  With over 50,000 attendees each summer, DSE is proud to be an economic driver for downtown Raleigh, supporting the local arts, musicians and dozens of local shops, bars, and restaurants.

We'll see you there!
