One of Greensboro’s most beloved music traditions is set to return to Downtown Greensboro in 2023. The TowneBank Beach Music Festival will feature five weeks of Carolina shaggin’ fun this summer:

  • May 4 | The Tams
  • May 18 | The Catalinas
  • June 1 | The Band of Oz
  • June 15 | Part Time Party Time Band
  • June 29 | Chairman of the Board

“We are excited to partner with the Downtown Greensboro, Inc. team to bring back the summer beach music festival,” says Scott Baker, president of TowneBank Triad. “The TowneBank Beach Music Festival will bring great energy to downtown Greensboro in an affordable, family-friendly manner. DGI continues to work hard to improve the downtown experience and we are privileged to participate. We look forward to enjoying these concerts with our community friends!”

Originally begun in 2003 as a fundraiser for Children’s Home Society (CHS), the festival took a hiatus in 2020 because of the pandemic. Today, DGI – with the blessing of CHS – is taking the reins to once again make Greensboro the hottest destination for beach music lovers this summer.

The five concerts, presented by Berico and Toyota of Greensboro, will be bigger than ever in their new venue at First National Bank Field, home of the Greensboro Grasshoppers, in downtown Greensboro.

“For almost 100 years Berico has enjoyed supporting our local community through our fuel, propane, HVAC services, and our Gift of Warmth charity. We are excited to continue this tradition by celebrating our 100th anniversary as a presenting sponsor of this year’s Beach Music Festival,” says Tom (CEO) and Will (President) Berry of Berico.

“I am thrilled to see another terrific event return to Downtown. Toyota of Greensboro is proud to be a part of this community and everything that makes it special,” adds Mary Rice, dealer principal of Toyota of Greensboro

General admission tickets will be $15 per concert or $50 for the 5-week package and may be purchased in advance online at beginning in mid-April.
