Town Party sells out in just minutes

Did you decide to sleep in a little on Monday morning? If so, you missed out on the chance to buy tickets for the Greenwich Town Party, because they are long gone now.

But don’t feel too bad. The window to buy them was a narrow one indeed, as tickets sold out within minutes of going on sale Monday morning at 9 both online at Greenwichtownparty.com and in person at Town Hall. The sellout was quick and complete, as general admission, senior and children’s tickets were all gone within five minutes, showing an increased demand after it took days last year to sell out the event. There were even complaints about ticket scalping.

According to party organizers, an allocation of 5,000 tickets was approved to be sold this year based on Roger Sherman Baldwin Park capacity. Of those tickets, 200 are being donated to local charitable organizations, and organizers said a “small number” of them are being held to be used in fund-raising to defer the cost of the event and so tickets could be offered to town residents at reduced costs.

The third annual Greenwich Town Party will take place on Saturday, May 25, with the legendary James Taylor serving as the main performer and Blues Traveler among other bands slated to perform.

But while residents may have missed out on tickets, there will still be chances to join the party, and for no cost. This year, from noon to 6 p.m., the party will have a satellite location at the Havemeyer Building parking lot on Greenwich Avenue, where local bands and family events will be held for no cost. Vendors including Bobby Q’s Pit Stop, El Charrito, Melt Mobile, The Original Good Humor Ice Cream Truck, and Wendy’s Weenies are slated to be on hand.

Additionally, the party’s website has a waiting list for people to sign up in case additional tickets are made available. There are also volunteer sign-up opportunities and a Greenwich Town Party ticket exchange forum for those looking for tickets from those who have purchased un-needed tickets.
