Festival of Discovery 1 week

We are 7 days and counting from the 15th Annual South Carolina Festival of Discovery (www.festivalofdiscovery.com). We expect a record 96+ BBQ teams to fill the Uptown Square along with a record 23 national and international blues artists.

The City of Greenwood has requested and been approved by South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) to allow the City of Greenwood to again CLOSE and DETOUR Main Street/US 25 Thursday, July 9 beginning at 6 PM through mid-day of Sunday, July 12. The closure also impacts a number of the Uptown side streets.

Please go ahead and make preparations for yourself, your employees and customers. You can anticipate the detour to be VERY similar to the 2014 route.

An online link to the detour map can be found here – http://www.uptowngreenwood.com/events/road-closures. Areas that will be closed are highlighted in RED.

THANK YOU in advance!
