Around Town: Music and Markets
Happy Friday, Greenvillians! We are now well into spring, and summer is right around the corner—and that means weekends are packed full of opportunities to head downtown for a drink, live music or fresh produce. Downtown Alive, Heritage Main Street Fridays, and the TD Saturday Market are some of my favorite spring and summer events in Greenville, SC. I hope to see you there!
Sponsored by Piedmont Natural Gas, this outdoor street party takes place every Thursday at NOMA Square (220 North Main Street, Greenville, SC) from now through August 27th. It runs from 5:30pm to around 8:30pm, and—like many downtown events—admission is free. Enjoy live musical entertainment, including rock, blues, funk and cover bands. Approximately 45,000 attend this event annually—not to mention that it’s the single largest fundraiser for the Metropolitan Arts Council—so make sure you don’t miss out!
Heritage Main Street Fridays
If you aren’t able to make it out on Thursday nights for Downtown Alive, you’ve got another chance on Fridays. From 5:30 until 9:30 every Friday from now through September 25th, head back to NOMA Square for live music performed by local, regional and national talent. Again, admission is free. The events started in March, making this a 28-week music series in total. A children’s activity area has also been added to the family fun for this year.
TD Saturday Market
Every Saturday morning from 8:30am until 12:3pm, now through October 31st, you can take advantage of the goods on offer at the TD Saturday Market on Main Street. Fresh produce and flowers are grown locally and delivered to the market each week. You can also get something to eat from one of the food vendors, or learn cooking or gardening tips from experts. Like the other events downtown, admission is free, kids are welcome, and there is live music to enjoy.
There is much to enjoy about living in Greenville, SC. If I can help you relocate to the area, or move within the area if you’re already here, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
