GREENWICH, Conn. -- The May 24 Greenwich Town Party is set to feature performances from Carlos Santana, Buddy Guy and George Clinton.
The party is an annual, day-long family festival. The event is described by organizers as a "giant block party" with music, food and family activities. This year's party is expanding to two locations: GTP North (Havemeyer Field) and GTP South (Roger Sherman Baldwin Park).
"In the spirit of mutual generosity, we urge the community to embrace the Greenwich spirit and make this event bigger and better than ever by volunteering, buying tickets, donating to or sponsoring the event to make it more affordable for others," GTP organizers said in a press release. "The day is an expression of contribution and how we help each other. Town-wide participation truly has made this party a success year after year."
This year's party will feature three Grammy-winning and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artists: rock singer, songwriter and maestro Carlos Santana, who will perform at GTP South; singer, songwriter, and Chicago blues guitar legend Buddy Guy (GTP South); and funk innovator, band leader, producer, and Captain of the Mothership, George Clinton & Parliament-Funkadelic, who will perform at GTP North.
In order to participate, one must be a Greenwich resident, Greenwich business owner or Greenwich business/organization employee. The cost per person is about $400 (the cost of a "Neighbor Ticket") and donors pay more to subsidize additional tickets ("Community-Funded Tickets") at a lower price. "Sponsor Packages" are on sale now starting at $2,500.
"Neighbor Tickets," become available at 10 a.m. Friday, April 4 on the GTP website .
"Buying Neighbor tickets or Sponsor tickets is a great way to participate and support the GTP while enjoying everything the party has to offer. We appreciate any contributions -- large or small. We, as a community, all benefit when we all give a little more and help our neighbors," said organizers.
