Have you picked up your tickets yet for the Greenwich Town Party ? Ticket sales are fast approaching the 3,500 limit for Saturdays event, held by Greenwich residents for Greenwich residents.
The all-day affair May 28 at Roger Sherman Baldwin Park will feature performances on two stages, a local stage with artists and musicians from Greenwich and neighboring towns and a main stage with musical greats The Temptations, Toots and the Maytals, Little Feat, Robert Randolph and the Family Band and a special performance by Grammy-winning blues legend Buddy Guy.
From 10 a.m.-2 p.m. come out for family activities such as face-painting and caricaturists, carnival games, arts and crafts, strolling musicians and an inflatable playhouse.
A small portion of the funding for the party comes from ticket sales, but most of it comes from donations from town residents and local business sponsors. Tickets are available on a first-come, first-serve basis and can be purchased in person at Greenwich Town Hall, at 101 Field Point Road (Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.), at the Arch Street Teen Center, 100 Arch St. (Tuesday and Thursday from 3 to 6 p.m.), online or by calling (866) 558-4253.
Prices are $40 for families with two adults and at least one child under 13 (10 a.m. to 2 p.m. only, and guests must enter before noon), and $40 per person for general all-day admission for attendees ages 13 to 64 (10 a.m. to 10 p.m.). Seniors 65 and older and children under 13 are free for all-day admission but need to arrange for tickets in advance at Greenwich Town Hall or the Arch Street Teen Center.
