Catch the draft! Fans are invited to attend the Carolina Panthers Primetime Draft Party presented by Bud Light on Thursday, April 28 from 5:30-10 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium. Admission is free.
With the Panthers holding the first overall pick, watch the first round of the NFL Draft live on large LED screens outside of the stadium's South Gate off Morehead Street and on the PantherVision screens inside the stadium bowl.
After the Panthers make their first-round selection, country recording artist and North Carolina native Jason Michael Carroll will perform a concert at the South Gate. His hits include "Alyssa Lies," "Livin' Our Love Song," "Where I'm From" and "Hurry Home."
Fans also will have access to exclusive, behind-the-scenes areas of the stadium not typically open to the public. Tours of the Panthers team locker room will be offered, and fans can go on the playing field to participate in the Primetime Kids' Combine, featuring activities like field goal kicks, quarterback/wide receiver challenge and more.
Back outside the stadium, 10 of the most unique Panthers-themed vehicles will be on display as part of the Panthers Pride Rides Vehicle Showcase. If you have a Panthers-themed vehicle that you take pride in and show off proudly on game day, then submit two photos of it for consideration in the competition.
Additional entertainment will include a performance by the Voltage Brothers, appearances by the TopCats and Sir Purr, sponsor interactives, and a question-and-answer session with Panthers play-by-play announcer Mick Mixon. Food and beverages will be available for purchase.
Strollers and video cameras will be permitted inside the stadium for the Primetime Draft Party only. Bags smaller than 8" x 10" x 14" will be allowed after inspection as well as two sealed plastic non-flavored water bottles per person. The following items will not be permitted in the stadium.
