The time has finally come. Bank of America Fall For Greenville presented by Pepsi is back, kicking off at 5 p.m. this Thurs., Oct. 13.

Before you indulge in the 54 restaurants + food trucks and their 250+ menu offerings and 80 performances — here are some tips to enjoying the festivities:

Snag your Taste Tickets beforehand

For those who haven’t been before, entry is free, but Taste Tickets are your way to pay for food + drink each day, including the new MAU at BMW Food Truck Row. While there are stations to purchase sheets of tickets ($5 per a sheet of five tickets) in person during the festival, lines can get pretty long — especially during the weekend. Beat the crowds by:

  • Order online (through Wed., Oct. 12) for pick up at Will Call (located near the CPI Security West End Stage Thurs., Oct. 13 + at City Hall Fri., Oct. 14-Sun., Oct. 16)
  • Buy in-person early (through Thurs., Oct. 13) at Experience Clemson on Main Street + Diamonds Direct on Woodruff Road. 🎟️

Planning to enjoy the 50+ draft and craft beers and wine? You’ll need a wristband. Bring a $1 bill and your ID to Will Call, the Carolina Ale House Beer Garden, or the CenterWell Senior Primary Care Wine Garden to get yours. Like the Taste tickets, the earlier you can get this, the better. 🍻

Fall For Greenville with the kiddos

The festival isn’t just for us “big kids.” If you’re planning to bring the little ones, visit the Visual Comfort & Co. Kids’ Area at East Broad Street, featuring slides + swings and a Toddler Town. Like the food and drink, kids rides are paid for with Taste tickets, so be sure to stock up. 🚸

Catch a free ride

Avoid downtown’s road closures + spending time searching for parking by taking advantage of these free, alternative ways to get to the festival:

  • Ride Greenlink’s complimentary trolley from County Square (drops off at South Main Street + Augusta Street).
  • Use public transit on Fare Free Friday (Fri., Oct. 14).
  • Ride your bike and park at Bike Walk Greenville’s Bike Valet (Sat., Oct. 15 + Sun., Oct. 16).
