Music in Black Dog’s Backyard

The Dog Bowl Logo

The Dog Bowl is Roanoke’s newest outdoor music and event venue.

Home to 5PTS Outdoors 2023, benefiting 5 Points Music Foundation and The Dog Bowl Market, every third Sunday.

The Dog Bowl is located on a beautiful strip of land between Black Dog Salvage and the Roanoke River Greenway. The stage, in true Black Dog fashion, is a converted semi-trailer we salvaged from a drive-in movie theater in Moneta, Virginia. The “LOVEwork” next to the stage celebrates 50 years of the “Virginia is for Lovers” slogan.
