About us

The Harvester Performance Center is an indoor, mid-sized music venue serving Rocky Mount, VA, and surrounding areas with great live performances in all kinds of genres.

A covered drop-off area makes the center easily accessible in any weather. Parking is available all around the venue, and our staff will assist in pointing out locations until you get the lay of the land.  The upper entrance level is where you will find the box office and lobby areas for the main room. The Harvester offers a choice of beverages, food and merchandise.  ABC On Premises. 


Food and drink may be taken freely throughout the venue, including during performances unless otherwise designated.

The main room seats up to 446 people, and in smaller configurations when deemed appropriate, the main room can also hold up to 700 people in a stand-up show configuration. The main room has a 40-foot wide stage with great sight lines and state-of-the-art audio, lighting and video systems. It is our hope that every show you attend will be the best you can see, hear and experience.
