Welcome to

do downtown G R E E N V I L L E

Do Downtown Greenville is an initiative of several downtown merchants, restaurants, and hotels in partnership with the Greenville Journal. Our goal is to communicate to residents and visitors alike everything our downtown has to offer. Downtown Greenville presents opportunities unlike any other with noteworthy shops, remarkable restaurants, visual and performing arts venues, beautiful green spaces, and more. The redevelopment vision of the City of Greenville is to have “a thriving Downtown which is recognized nationally as an example of a ‘state-of-the-art’ community in which to live, work, and Saffron’s is an eclectic cafe, with a welcoming outdoor patio, specializing in delicious and reasonably priced cuisine. The menu is hardly basic, and is loaded with a variety of fresh salads, flatbread wraps, sandwiches, sides, soups and specialties like seared tuna. All items are homemade, including the warm pretzel bread, buckeye cookies and chicken salad. The burgers on the menu “fly out of our door” and are wildly popular! Plus, Saffron’s offers an extensive catering menu – from lunch buffets to sit down dinners. We can feed your party of 5 to 500. We offer cold sandwiches and boxed lunches for the casual needs, to filet mignon and rock lobster for your special event. Check out the entire catering menu on-line. Whether you are in the mood to indulge in something new or just want to enjoy some old favorites, we promise to leave you truly satisfied.

play… which serves in itself as a national attraction.” Mission accomplished. Downtown Greenville is home to 90 shops and 90 restaurants. If you can’t find it here, chances are it can’t be found! Another component of Do Downtown Greenville is a focus on all things local. Shop local. Eat local. Support local. When you shop local, you help support our community. Many of our friends, neighbors, and families are employed by, or own, these businesses that bring special products, services, and variety to Greenville. Make the commitment to shop local this holiday season and know the joy of supporting our community – one of the greatest gifts of all.

Trust Saffron’s – you will NOT be disappointed!

Travel editors share their three favorite trips for fall Sometimes we find fall in unexpected places. When we do, we like to tell you about our discoveries. These spots make the region proud when it comes to blazing color. You’ll also experience so much more than the brilliant foliage. One of Kentucky’s (#1) highest points shelters buildings from a long-gone settlement, along with an unparalleled view. An upscale South Carolina (#2) city harbors an amazing urban park in its midst. And Oklahoma (#3) offers up a lively festival to match the crisp air. Give these fall destinations a try; you’ll find them worthy of further exploration this harvest season.

beautiful campuses imaginable. Walking trails and radiant foliage provide a perfect backdrop for the Bell Tower, reflected in a 30-acre lake. Home to events throughout the year, this scene is a postcard-perfect salute to autumn. Note: While visiting Furman, don’t miss The Cliffs Cottage, the Southern Living Showcase Home. Dedicated to Green living, this house features eco-friendly building materials. For more information visit www.furmancliffscottage.com. Speaking of picture-perfect, I love the Greenville County Museum of Art, with its Southern collection and Jasper Johns paintings. One last beautiful spot is the Museum & Gallery at Bob Jones University. I am awestruck by the 450 Old Master paintings that reside here. A 500-year-old tapestry from Brussels completes my journey into a city filled with color, personality, and beauty.

Greenville, South Carolina I hear the sounds of tumbling water, the click of a swing swaying in a light breeze. Bright foliage filters the October sunshine, and I feel as if I have been plopped into a country setting. However, I’m smack dab in the middle of cosmopolitan Greenville, South Carolina. Here, I discover big leafy scenes of the season.

Urban Park Deluxe The centerpiece of Greenville’s lovely downtown is stunning Falls Park. Down Main Street, I find a perfect setting of greenspace, gardens, the Reedy River, and a gorgeous waterfall. The Liberty Bridge spans it all, with its curved, 355-foot-long pedestrian walkway. I can’t think of a finer view than from that bridge, which overlooks nature trails, landscaped flowerbeds, and people enjoying the season. Fall remains the first attraction here in October, but there is certainly more to see. This month includes Fall for Greenville, a hugely popular food festival that features more than 40 of the city’s best restaurants. Music, ice-carving demonstrations, and a chili cookoff add to the festive atmosphere.

Outdoor festival celebrates visual, performing and culinary arts May is shaping up to be a big month for Janina Tukarski Ellis. The West End painter anticipates welcoming a crowd of visitors to her booth at Artisphere, but that’s not all. Shortly before the arts extravaganza fills the streets of Downtown Greenville May 13-15, Janina and her husband, Joe, will welcome their first baby, too. “It’s going to be a busy couple of weeks,” she laughs. Ellis is among 120 visual artists showcased in the festival’s open-air Artists Row. Selected through a competitive juried process, these are some of the region’s top talents representing a variety of creative mediums. Artisphere also features an eclectic schedule of performing artists and an Arts Café serving up local flavors.

Artists Row draws huge crowds—an estimated 50,000 last year. Many have never visited an art gallery before but are attracted to the easy-going outdoor venue, says Ellis, who works out of a studio in Greenville’s Pendleton Arts District. “At Artisphere, we bring our art to the public, instead of waiting for the public to come to us,” she says. “People head downtown simply to enjoy a lovely weekend, and while here discover that there is indeed a thriving arts scene in Greenville.” Plenty of people visit Artists Row in search of original, handcrafted artwork, Ellis says, “but there’s no pressure to buy anything—just come out and enjoy art for the art itself.”

discover Greenville’s rich artistic diversity.” In addition to Artists Row, Artisphere is a venue for the region’s favorite performing artists and also plays host to local youth groups. Musical acts range from southern soul to indie rock to classical, while entertainment runs the gamut from step teams to ballet troupes. Blending the line between visual and performing arts are a potter, an encaustic artist and a blacksmith presenting live demonstrations of their chosen craft. “Artisphere is a chance to sample the arts,” says Murphy, and it was recognized as one of the country’s “Top 100 Fine Arts Festivals” by a Sunshine Artist readership poll. “There truly is something here for everyone.”

ARTS SCENE HERE

JUST KIDDING

Indeed, Artisphere is all about highlighting the local creative community. “We put together a great collection of visual, performing and culinary arts,” says Executive Director Kerry Murphy. “More than just raising awareness, we want to make art accessible … Artisphere is an easy way to

Woodworker Michael McDunn has participated in Artists Row every year since its inaugural. A working craftsman for the past three decades, he grew up in a big family with a vibrantly creative mother. A pastel artist, she exposed her children to art “from day one,” McDunn says, fondly recalling many

an afternoon sitting amongst his siblings at a kitchen table scattered with crayons, markers, paints and more, all in an atmosphere sparked with artistic possibilities. “That type of experience is so important for children,” he says, “and that’s why Kidsphere is such a vital part of Artisphere.” This “apprentice workshop” gives kids an opportunity to become artists for the day— perhaps even for life. Governors School students guide hands-on activities ranging from making jewelry to splattering paint to crafting paper collage and mosaic bowls. Other fun events include Brian Olsen’s Art in Action, a colorful display of paint, energy and passion as this dynamic artist creates portraits to music. “Kidsphere is a big, big draw,” Murphy says. “Best of all, it’s completely free.”

MAKING CENTS Competition to get juried into Artists Row is fierce—700-plus hopefuls applied for 120 available slots—because the event makes economic sense. Based on artist sales, Artisphere ranks


among the nation’s “Top 20 Arts Festivals” according to Greg Lawler’s Art Fair Sourcebook 2010. “Our artists tend to do really well,” Murphy says. Artisphere provides an alternative to mass-produced “stuff” that doesn’t stand the test of time, says McDunn, who works out of a Rutherford Road studio. “When you purchase something handmade by a local craftsman, you have a piece of art that will last for generations,” he explains. And if that artist ultimately achieves fame, “who knows, it might become really valuable one day.” McDunn doesn’t suggest buying art in anticipation of turning a profit, however. Rather, he says, “buy something you love. You can’t put a dollar value on your appreciation for a beautiful piece of art.”

Free outdoor concert series bring music, fun and fellowship downtown

Some places, pollen is the telltale sign. But here in Greenville, we know it’s spring because the air downtown is filled with the sound of live music. That’s because three favorite series— Downtown Alive, Main Street Fridays and Rhythm on the River—bring a variety of musical entertainment to outdoor venues during the spring and summer months. These popular weekly happenings promise plenty of fun and fellowship for all ages. So come Do Downtown by taking in an outdoor concert!

Thursdays have long been synonymous with Downtown Alive. This warm-weather street party brings free entertainment to the Hyatt Plaza every Thursday from 5:30-8:30PM through August 25. “Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive and BB&T Main Street Fridays are some of our most popular events,” says Tara Eaker, Marketing Manager for the City of Greenville. “These series provide great free, live musical entertainment for people of all ages.” Now that spring is officially here, Eaker says, people are looking for opportunities to be outdoors—and Downtown Alive gives everyone a chance to play outside after a day in the office. The 24-week series features rock, blues, funk and cover bands from across the region. The Thursday gathering tends to attract a young-adult audience; therefore, organizers have added The Player’s Zone, an interactive area featuring Birdie Ball and tailgating games such as cornhole, ladder golf and washers. Last year, Downtown Alive attracted an average 1,800 attendees each week. “Piedmont Natural Gas Downtown Alive serves as the single largest fundraiser for the

This free, family-friendly gathering takes place every Friday at the Hyatt Plaza from 5:30-9:30PM. “BB&T Main Street Fridays is a familyoriented event,” Eaker says, and much of the entertainment is geared toward the with-kids demographic. “We have a Kid’s Zone that features children’s inflatables, face painting and other special events.” The 29-week series runs through Sept. 30.

This Friday funfest has changed its focus from years past, with a lineup now leaning toward more jazz, blues, beach and variety music. “Proceeds generated from BB&T Main Street Fridays go directly back toward event operations, which in turn allows the City to continue providing great events free of charge to the public,” Eaker says, noting that in 2010 Main Street Fridays attracted an average of 2,000-2,500 attendees each week.

Larkin’s Rhythm on the River Forget the Grand Strand. The Southeast’s #1 beach music concert series is right here on the banks of the Reedy River. Larkin’s Rhythm on the River brings the best of beach music to the Dow Amphitheatre on Thursdays at 7PM. The award-winning series runs May 12 through Sept. 8.

“We are the only multi-week concert series in the Southeast that offers authentic regional beach music,” says Bob Munnich, Managing Partner of Larkin’s on the River. “We want to entertain the locals and give a true taste of South Carolina music to visitors.” But Rhythm on the River is more than just wholesome family fun all summer long, Munnich says. “Larkin’s goal is to ‘Give Back’ to the community,” he explains. Thus the series serves a greater purpose through “Larkin’s Gives Back,” a grassroots effort to benefit local nonprofits that assist children, the arts and the community; over the past five years, Rhythm on the River has generated some $500,000 for Upstate causes. (The application process for 2011 recipients is underway through April 1; for details, call 864-467-9777 or visit www. rhythmontheriver.com.)

AT SATURDAY MARKET – SHOP FRESH, BUY LOC AL Do the Carolina First Saturday Market. In 2002, the City of Greenville formed a task force with the initiative to develop an open-air downtown farmers’ market for the sale of locally grown farm products, arts, and crafts in order to attract people downtown and provide a resource for the booming residential development taking place. It was decided that the farmers’ market would be located on E. Court Street, the site of the 1920s Greenville Curb Market. The original name for the new event was the “Poinsett Curb Market” in honor of Joel Poinsett, a historical South Carolina figure who was botanist and experimental farmer, but was changed prior to the first market on April 26, 2003 to the “Saturday

Market” in order to convey a more casual and fun message. The Saturday Market’s fifth year in 2007 marked a new beginning for the Saturday Market as several changes occurred. First, the market relocated to Main Street to establish more prominence in Downtown Greenville. This new location was ideal, providing ample shade from the magnificent Main Street trees and generating more shoppers from local foot traffic. The 2011 Saturday Market will feature a variety of weekly events over the course of the season, which begins May 7 and will run through October 29. Visit SaturdayMarketLive.com for more information and check back frequently to view the updated vendor list.
