Below are a few events in Greenville to experience everything that the city has to offer:
Enjoy Live Music In Downtown
Greenville has two large music events each year, and both are starting this spring! Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive and Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays are the perfect events if you love live music. These events have local musicians and bands perform live at NOMA Square on Main Street. The Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive is on Thursdays from March 17 – August 25, and the Greenville Heritage Main Street Fridays is (appropriately) on Fridays and runs from March 18 – September 23. All concerts start at 5:30 p.m. These events typically bring in quite a crowd, so be sure to prepare for wait times and potential parking delays. But our residents don’t have to wait–our convenient transportation service can get them there without worrying about finding a parking space.

Gardening is a relaxing, productive activity that can help lower stress and support our mental health. But just because the weather is getting cooler doesn't mean we have to wait until next year to enjoy gardening. Fall is the best time to plant perennial flower bulbs, which bloom year after year!
Check with your local nursery for recommendations on what to plant. There are a range of choices--daffodils, tulips, allium, and hyacinth are 4 of the hardiest perennials for all planting zones. When spring comes around, you can look for your budding flowers!
Food is a critical component of not only our health, but our overall happiness and well being. That’s why we place a large emphasis on the importance of healthy eating. The food we eat every day plays a huge role in our brain function, and that doesn’t change as we get older. In fact, it’s even more important!: ow.ly/FQ7O50KWcuY
