Town party tickets go on sale April 8

Officially, tickets for the third annual Greenwich Town Party do not go on sale until Monday, April 8, at 9 a.m. with a sellout expected as quickly as within 24 hours, but there’s an opportunity for those who want to jump a bit ahead.

The “Fair Share Ticket” is a new deal being offered this year and is available now through the Greenwich Town Party website greenwichtownparty.com. According to party organizers, this Fair Share ticket is being offered for $400, which is representative of the cost to produce the party, which will take place on Saturday, May 25 Buying a ticket through this secures admission to the event and also supports the new Greenwich tradition because this ticket price is equal to the concept of sponsorship donations that makes general admission tickets available for so many.

The party’s ticket inventory and prices are structured to accommodate multi-level consumers from all over Greenwich who wish to attend. This is designed to keep the general admission tickets at a lower price for residents. Organizers said in a press release that Fair Share tickets were introduced this year to give people a structured opportunity to secure entry to the event while simultaneously “throwing something in the pot” to help cover the actual event costs. Donations are being accepted through the event website and all donations for this event are matched by a local resident.

General admission tickets will go on sale on April 8, in the lobby of Town Hall and online at greenwchtownparty.com. Those tickets will be $50 a person, from ages 13 to 64-years-old. Senior tickets, for people 65-years-old or older are $20 person and children under 12 will be admitted free. Those tickets are expected to sell out fast and they are limited to Greenwich residents, Greenwich business owners and employees of Greenwich businesses and organizations. However non-Greenwich residents may attend as guests.

Tickets will be sold at Town Hall Monday to Friday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets ordered online must be picked up in person at Town Hall prior to the event or on-site the day of the event. A valid state or federal issued photo ID with a Greenwich address, like Connecticut driver’s license or ID Card, is required to purchase or pick-up tickets. For Greenwich business/organization owners and employees a Corporate ID Card, a pay stub or a letter from the Greenwich business/organization on official letterhead will be acceptable forms of identification. Each eligible individual may purchase up to a maximum of four tickets. An allotment of 200 complimentary tickets is being given to local non-profit organizations.

And those buying tickets seem to be in store for quite a show at the main stage in Roger Sherman Baldwin Park. The Harlem Gospel Choir will kick off the day at 11:45 a.m., followed by performances from Blues Traveler, singer/songwriter Caroline Jones, Grammy-nominated Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue, and the acclaimed hip hop/rock/reggae band Michael Franti & Spearhead. Five-time Grammy Award winning legend, James Taylor will then close out the night on the main stage.

The Greenwich Town Party will host a four-hour family festival from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., a BBQ Grill-Off with ‘People’s Choice Awards’ from noon to 2 p.m., and a special information area featuring local non-profit and civic organizations. An extensive selection of food and beverages will also be available for purchase throughout the day from local restaurants and caterers at the food court and café area.

Additionally, in an effort to accommodate additional families this year, the Greenwich Town Party will be hosting a second event location directly off of Greenwich Avenue in the Havemeyer Building parking lot where a stage will be set up for local bands to perform. Full details about this free satellite event, called GTP Rocks the Avenue, will be released soon.

Residents in the community are being encouraged to volunteer at the event. A sign-up link is available on the Greenwich Town Party website, and residents can apply for volunteer positions to work at the event. A limited number of positions are available for those interested in working for set time periods during the event. Volunteers are given one free ticket to remain at the event before or after their shift.
