On Friday, these tickets and packages will be available for purchase on the web site at greenwichtownparty.org, and then in person during the Holiday Stroll December 6-7, in front of Richards (359 Greenwich Avenue) and vineyard vines (145 Greenwich Avenue). Tickets will also be sold during the First Light festivities in Old Greenwich on December 6 at 6 p.m., in front of Chilly Bear (180 Sound Beach Avenue) and at the finish line of the Jingle Bell Jog (20 Church Street) on Sunday, December 7 at 9 a.m.

The Block Party Gift Set, which includes six general admission tickets for $750, is available throughout the holidays until December 31. The official on-sale date for general admission tickets is February 5, 2015.

Neighbor Tickets, which cost $250 apiece, provide access to a designated Neighborhood Area with wine, beer and snacks.

GTP Sponsor Packages for individuals and businesses are available now, starting at $1,250, and provide access to the Sponsor Tent with catered food and beverages throughout the day and evening.

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 have been for such a large event.

During the Holiday Stroll on Saturday, December 6, the GTP, Richards and Vineyard Vines will provide free parking along Greenwich Avenue. (Parking is always free on Sundays.)

The GTP headliner and bands will be announced in 2015. For more information on sponsorship packages and tickets for the 2015 GTP, please visit the web site at greenwichtownparty.org.

At the same time, on December 5, the Greenwich Town Party (GTP) will launch the GTP Community Heroes Campaign, 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 will have the opportunity 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 this year the GTP would like to voice their contributions.

One hundred heroes will be chosen at random throughout the year 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, heroes@greenwichtownparty.org or any GTP social media platform with the hashtag #gtpheroes [Facebook facebook.com/GreenwichTownParty, Twitter Twitter.com/greenwichtown, Instagram: Instagram.com/GreenwichTownParty]. Starting December 5, submissions will be 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 or 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.
