Two levels of tickets are now on sale for the 2016 Greenwich Town Party (GTP), the 6th annual day-long family music festival planned for Saturday, May 28 at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park.
In order to guarantee entry into this year’s party, Greenwich residents and businesses can now purchase Neighbor Tickets and Sponsor Packages online at greenwichtownparty.org.
These tickets will also be available for purchase in person during the Greenwich Holiday Stroll Weekend on Saturday, December 5, in front of Richards (359 Greenwich Avenue) and vineyard vines® at 145 Greenwich Ave. Also on Saturday, the GTP, along with Richards and vineyard vines®, will provide free parking along Greenwich Avenue. (Parking is always free on Sundays.)
Additionally, Neighbor and Sponsor Tickets will be sold during the First Light festivities in Old Greenwich on Saturday, December 5 from 5 to 8 p.m., in front of Chilly Bear (180 Sound Beach Avenue).
“The Greenwich Town Party is excited to participate in the annual holiday events this weekend,” said Sara Allard of Case Study Brands, one of the GTP organizers. “The sixth annual GTP is gearing up, thanks to the generous support and participation of the community. The goal of the GTP is to encourage community spirit throughout the year so we hope everyone will come out and join us as we support local businesses this Saturday.”
GTP Sponsor Packages for individuals and businesses start at $1,250 and provide access to the Sponsor Tent with catered food and full bar throughout the day and evening. This level also includes preferred parking in the Island Beach parking lot.
Neighbor Tickets, which cost $250 apiece, provide access to a designated Neighborhood Area with complimentary food, wine and beer. Ticket holders will have preferred parking.
Sponsors Packages, Neighbor Tickets and donations from town residents and local businesses provide the majority of party funding each year, allowing more people to attend. Thanks to the continued generosity of sponsors and donors, the community ticket prices have been reduced to a fraction of what they would be for such a large event.
The GTP headliner and bands will be announced in early 2016. For more information on Sponsorship Packages and tickets for the 2015 GTP, please visit the web site at greenwichtownparty.org.
Greenwich Town Party Celebrates Local Stories of Community, Generosity
Now in its second year, the GTP Community Heroes Campaign is an initiative that celebrates the people who exemplify the generous spirit of Greenwich and what makes some 60,000 residents proud to call it their hometown. Greenwich residents are encouraged to recognize the remarkable people who touch their lives and enrich their community – from a friend or neighbor to a teacher, coach, doctor or firefighter. Unsung heroes are often silent strengths in the community, and the GTP is honored to voice their contributions.
In May, a select number of Heroes will be chosen to receive a pair of tickets to the 2015 Greenwich Town Party to celebrate being an integral part of the fabric of Greenwich. Every nominated hero will be recognized publicly at this year’s event.
Greenwich residents and businesses can submit stories of local heroes via email, [email protected] or any GTP social media platform with the hashtag #gtpheroes
Submissions are showcased on the GTP web site at greenwichtownparty.org/heroes.
The Greenwich Town Party is an annual, day-long family festival held on the Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend. Since 2011, the GTP has brought the town together to celebrate Greenwich pride and the spirit of giving with music, food, and family activities, which organizers describe as a “giant block party.” The goal of the GTP is to encourage community spirit that extends throughout the year.
