Find a Party 

Swing through Dickinson Avenue After Dark (between Evans Street & Reade Circle) from 7pm - 10pm to experience Greenville’s nighttime outdoor street festival featuring local craft breweries, wineries, and cideries East of I-95! Also find a plethora of delicious food trucks, dessert vendors, and other tasty treats… along with a DJ spinning tunes, fire and aerial performances, and more to enjoy while you sip, sample, and stroll! Dickinson Avenue After Dark is a free entry event, but attendees must pay for the pints and samples you want to enjoy. There is no age requirement (except 21+ to drink of course!), but this is not a child-focused event. The event space can become crowded, so please keep in mind before bringing children and pets.
