To celebrate our tenth anniversary, we’re asking our friends and family to share what American Tobacco Campus means to them in the form of a photo or other piece of original art:


Prizes include a weekend stay at the coming Aloft Durham Downtown hotel and much more. Please help us spread the word! And don’t forget still more upcoming anniversary fun:


  • The rousing finale of the 2014 Back Porch Music on the Lawn series, featuring the ever-popular Chatham County Line on Thursday, Sept. 4, 6-8pm. (Public)


  • A tenant appreciation party with bands and picnics on the fabled American Tobacco lawn on Friday, Sept. 5, 3-5pm. (Private)


  • A BBQ lunch for former American Tobacco factory workers and people involved in the campus’ renovation on Saturday, Sept. 6, including tours of intriguing campus spaces, including private businesses not always open to visitors. (Private — but press welcome)


  • A public festival on Blackwell Street, Sunday, Sept. 7, 1-5pm. The street party will bridge the original old campus to its recent additions, including Durham Performing Arts Center, Durham Bulls Athletic Park, the coming Aloft Hotel and Diamond View III with its many new restaurants. The festival will also feature tours of intriguing campus places not always available to visitors. (Public)
