Details Given On

Arrangements For

Parking, Vendors,

Portable Toilets

The Greene County Partnership provided additional details this morning about arrangements for the free public concert Saturday evening by The Band Perry.

The concert, which is planned for North Main Street at 6 p.m., is expected to attract an extremely large attendance. The stage will be set up near the Greene County Election Commission office, facing the downtown area.

The concert is being presented by the Partnership and sponsored by General Mills.

Especially because of the size of the anticipated crowd, dozens of local agencies have been involved in planning all aspects of the event -- from security, parking, food, and portable toilets to the issue of what should not be brought to the concert.

A news release provided this morning by the Partnership explained that, because there is expected to be limited space because of the anticipated size of the crowd, those attending the concert are asked not to bring umbrellas, lawn chairs and coolers.

Tents and camping will also be prohibited in the concert area, as will the drinking of alcohol.


Handicap parking for the concert will be available from the Irish Street side of First Baptist Church, according to the Partnership.

The parking lot will be restricted to handicapped individuals. Those with handicap placards must show their placard registration form in order to park in the specified area, a Partnership news release today explained.

In addition, those with handicap license plates will be asked to show their car registration and driver's license.

A handicap area will be provided near the stage for the performance. Admittance is restricted to one caregiver with each handicapped person.


Everyone is reminded that there will be absolutely no parking on the streets in the closed concert area.

This includes Main Street from Spencer to Summer streets, as well as areas of Depot and Church Streets.

Vehicles parked in the closed areas will be towed at the expense of the owners, the release stated.


Vendors in the closed area will be providing barbecue, hot dogs, hamburgers and a variety of drinks.

There will also be several The Band Perry vendors who will offer TBP-related items for sale to concert visitors.


Portable toilets will be located in the parking area of Roby Adult Center off East Church Street near College Street, and in the Capital Bank parking lot between Greeneville Cumberland Presbyterian Church and Heritage Community Bank (off West Church Street).


Shuttle service will begin at noon on Saturday from large parking areas at the Greene County Fairgrounds and Hal Henard Elementary School.

Shuttles from the Greene County Fairgrounds will drop off at Roby Adult Center (corner of Church Street and College Street), and shuttles from Hal Henard School will drop off at the corner of McKee Street and Main Street.

Shuttle service will continue until after the autograph-signing by the Perrys following the concert.


For more information on the concert, call the Greene County Partnership, 638-4111, or the Town of Greeneville information line, 639-7106.

Information is also available on the Partnership Facebook page, "" or the Town of Greeneville's Facebook page, ""
