Camp North End, 1824 Statesville Avenue, has started up its Friday night concert series for 2018.
Friday Nights at Camp North End is scheduled for every Friday through October 26th, 2018.
It’s free to attend.
There’s beer, a food truck or two, and a band (or more than one band), plus other surprises. There’s lots of seating, some big swings, and a large paved area where kids can play and draw with sidewalk chalk.
The events run from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m.
One great addition this year is the NoDa Company Canteen, from the folks that run NoDa Company Store. They will have the official tiki bar, where they’ll serve all kinds of great drinks.
Also, they’re offering free walking tours every Friday at 4 p.m. (You need to sign up in advance. Follow the link.)
Check out the Facebook event each week to see what’s planned for Friday.

More about Camp North End
Camp North End is a “new old” place. Ford Motor Company built it in 1924 as manufactured Model T and Model A automobiles there. After that it was used by the U.S. Army as a missile assembly and storage space. It’s got an interesting history.
I had a chance to visit and take some pictures. Read more about it here and look at some pictures.
Now it’s being developed by ATCO for offices, event space, retail, artist studios and public gathering space, all the while preserving the historical space.
