Hugh Morton (Greenfield Lake) Amphitheater



Bringing some of the best musical and theatrical entertainment from around the world to the area, Greenfield Lake Amphitheater is one of the most magical settings, nestled in a basin of the Cape Fear River surrounded by hundred-year-old cypress trees, long leaf pines, and 180 degrees of water.

Greenfield Lake Amphitheater, also knows as the Hugh Morton Amphitheater, is a boutique-style gated venue with a capacity of 1,200. This popular outdoor lakeside venue has added concession and restroom buildings, as well as new landscaping. This handicapped-accessible outdoor venue is available for rental through Live Nation.

An open-air amphitheater was built in 1962 on the south side of Greenfield Lake. It was originally equipped with wooden benches left over from the 1938 premiere of "The Lost Colony." In 2008, the Hugh Morton Amphitheater was upgraded with a $1.2 million renovation. The improvements included a new stage cover structure, concessions and a box office.

Greenfield Park, including the venue, was designated by City Council as a Local Historic Landmarks in April 2011. Any changes to the design, materials and appearance of the significant features will be subject to the design review procedures of the Historic Preservation Commission.
