Raleigh-Durham Things to Do - Raleigh-Durham Things to Do Labor Day Weekend


  • Catch a game. The Carolina Mudcats and Durham Bulls baseball teams are both at home all weekend as are the Carolina Rail Hawks (soccer).
  • First Friday in Raleigh. First Friday in Raleigh is one of the Triangle's favorite events and all of downtown Raleigh gets into the act.  There are free self-guided tours of local art galleries, and a number of the museums including Marbles Children's Museum and IMAX theater are open late.  Many shops stay open late as well and restaurants offer specials.  There's often live music too.
  • Bluegrass in Chapel Hill.  Fridays on the Front Porch brings the town and university together for live music on the front lawn of the Carolina Inn in Chapel Hill.  Starts at 5 p.m.



  • USA Baseball. The Labor Day Cup is an open invitation tournament comprised of 16 teams (eight 16U and eight 18U teams). Each team is guaranteed four games. The event will is held in Cary, N.C., at the USA Baseball National Training Complex.
  • Rock the Cradle.  Legendary music venue Cat's Cradle presents Abbey Road Live with all your favorite Beatles music. Take the kids - there's no school on Monday.  Doors open at 8 p.m.  Show starts at 9 p.m.
