Alcohol Serving and Consumption

For most events at the Bojangles' Entertainment Complex, alcoholic beverages are available for purchase. Guests must be at least 21 years old to purchase alcohol. All alcohol sales require a photo ID as proof of age.

In North Carolina, there are four acceptable forms of identification that can be used to buy alcoholic beverages:

  • Current driver’s license from any state in the United States
  • Current U.S. military identification card
  • Current North Carolina identification card
  • Current official passport issued by any nation

Guests are not permitted to bring in alcoholic beverages from outside and may not leave with alcohol purchased inside of the BOplex. Management reserves the right to refuse the sale of alcohol to any guest.

Guests are encouraged to consume alcoholic beverages in a responsible manner. Intervention with an impaired, intoxicated or underage guest will be handled in a prompt and safe manner.

Animals

Although we love animals as much as you do, only service animals are permitted inside of the Bojangles' Entertainment Complex.

“Service animal” is defined as a dog (or, subject to certain limitations, a miniature horse) that has been trained to do work or perform tasks for the benefit of an individual with a disability. Comfort or emotional support animals are not considered service animals. The patron is responsible for the care and control of the animal. Service animals must be on a harness, leash or other tether. A ticket is not required for a service animal. If the service animal becomes unruly or is not properly housebroken, the handler may be asked to remove it from the premises and participate in the event without its use.

B
Bag Policies

Bags and backpacks should be smaller than 14" x 14" x 6". Diaper bags larger than 14" x 14" x 6" will be permitted. All bags are subject to search upon entry into Bojangles' Coliseum and Ovens Auditorium.

C
Camera/Video Recording Policy

Video cameras, audio recorders and professional cameras with removable lens are prohibited at the Bojangles' Entertainment Complex. Some events allow fans to take pictures without flash (on their phone or small handheld camera without a removable lens), but many do not. Please refer to the pre-show email you receive the day before your event for specific details.

If you bring your camera and the event does not allow it inside, you must return it to your vehicle. Call our customer service team at (704) 372-3600 for the camera policy on a particular event.

Some shows do require tickets for infants under 2 years of age, however. Please confirm with the box office before purchasing.

Diaper bags are permitted, but are subject to search upon entry into our venues.
