The City of Greenville produces and sponsors a number of large scale special events throughout the year. These events provide entertainment that showcases the best Greenville has to offer in music, art, culture and food for all ages. In order to produce these high quality and diverse events each year, the City’s Event Management staff depends highly on the support of almost 4,500 volunteers.
