“The Greenway Summer Concert Series has grown exponentially since it began five years ago,” said Greenway operations director Buddy Faile. “Averaging 500 attendees, the weekly concerts provide the perfect backdrop for families and friends to enjoy good music in a beautiful natural setting.”
Attendees are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs and picnics to the Amphitheater for their enjoyment. The concerts are free for Greenway members and $5 per person for non-members. Special event parking is $5 per car with seasonal special event parking passes available for purchase, $30 and $45 for members and non-members respectively.
To kick off the summer, the Greenway will host its Member Appreciation Concert on June 1, featuring the music of Next Level and food from New Wrap Order, Red Oak Catering, Killer Q, Kona Ice, the Donut Guy and Popcorn Heaven. Members who attend the concert with their membership card will be able to spin for prizes such as koozies, bandanas, hats and guest passes. All Greenway members who attend will be entered into a drawing to win one of four top prizes, including a weekend of camping at the Greenway and a tent/camp chair prize pack donated by REI.
Concerts take place at the Comporium Amphitheater, 291 Dairy Barn Lane, Fort Mill. Beer, wine and sodas will be available for purchase. No glass or outside alcohol allowed. Food trucks will be on site for each concert and will vary by date. Well-behaved dogs on six-foot leashes are welcome to attend.
