The BB&T Pavilion is an outdoor amphitheater/indoor theater complex in Camden, New Jersey, United States, located in the Camden Waterfront entertainment district on the Delaware River across from Philadelphia.

History[edit]

The BB&T Pavilion opened in June 1995, with naming rights belonging to Blockbuster and Sony Music Entertainment. On April 1, 2001, the amphitheater was renamed after naming rights were bought by Tweeter. Susquehanna Bank purchased the naming rights in 2008. After Winston-Salem-based BB&T bank bought Susquehanna Bank on August 1, 2015, the amphitheater was renamed BB&T Pavilion.

Facility[edit]

The year-round facility serves as a 25,488 [1] capacity outdoor amphitheater during the summer months which features a lawn with video screens, computerized sound enhancement, and a clear view of the Philadelphia skyline, Delaware River, and the Benjamin Franklin Bridge to the northwest. In the fall and winter months, the BB&T Pavilion converts to a fully enclosed, climate-controlled, flexible-capacity theater for up to 7,000 people offering a variety of concerts, Broadway theatrical productions, and family entertainment.

The BB&T Pavilion is adjacent to the Battleship New Jersey Museum and Memorial, Wiggins Park, and the Adventure Aquarium.
