Main Street Hartsville Presents Downtown Block Party Concert Series

Hartsville, SC — Main Street Hartsville presents the Downtown Block Party Concert Series to launch a fall season full of events in Hartsville. The Painted Man Band based out of Myrtle Beach will be kicking off the event on September 13th under the lights on College Avenue from 6:00-9:00 p.m. This band is sure to provide an electrifying atmosphere to concert goers as they perform musical covers by a variety of artists from The Temptations to Bruno Mars.

This is the first concert in a series of three concerts coming to College Avenue this fall sponsored by Sonoco, North Industrial Machine, and Integrated Systems, Inc. On September 27th, Hartsville will welcome Wet Nose Dogs, a Florence based band that provides a blues take on various genres of music and on October 11th, Dylan Sneed, a Hartsville resident that has recently moved back home to raise his family and bring his music back to the city he loves.

The Downtown Block Party events will be enhanced by the city’s new open container ordinance that will allow adult guests over 21 years old to carry beverages purchased downtown while they walk between dinner, shops, and the concert itself.

The street closure on East College Avenue will range from the Fifth Street intersection through the midpoint of the 100 block. Both public parking lots will remain open and accessible from Mantissa Row, North Fourth Street and East Home Avenue.

The Main Street Hartsville program is a partnership of the City of Hartsville and Main Street South Carolina, a service of the Municipal Association of South Carolina. The organization seeks to enhance downtown revitalization in Hartsville through efforts focusing on the City’s master plan, including organization, design, promotion and economic restructuring.
