Walnut Creek Amphitheater
The Walnut Creek Amphitheater is a concert and performance venue owned by the City of Raleigh and operated
by Live Nation. In FY14, the City created the Walnut Creek Amphitheater Operating Fund to properly budget,
account for and report the operating expenses the facility. Prior to FY14, the facility only had a capital budget. The
Convention Center and Performing Arts Complex staff monitors general facility maintenance and performs capital
maintenance at Walnut Creek Amphitheater when needed. Amphitheater rental revenue, generated from the
operating agreement with Live Nation, exclusively funds operating and capital needs. Staff coordinates with Live
Nation to identify and prioritize capital needs, and all approved capital projects are incorporated into the City’s
capital improvement plan.
