Riley Festival Opening Ceremonies held in Entertainment Tent!
The Riley Festival is held the first weekend in October each year, Thursday through Sunday in downtown Greenfield, IN. Greenfield Banking Company serves as a corporate sponsor of the Riley Festival Opening Ceremonies by sponsoring the Entertainment Tent and a free concert on Thursday evening immediately following the Opening Ceremonies.
Since the early 90's the bank has been a participant of the Riley Festival. From 1992 through 1998 the event was a Pig Roast and Western Street Dance. In 1999, the bank brought “Endless Summer,” a musical variety group, for an opening performance in place of the Pig Roast.
We continue this tradition of sponsoring a musical performance to kick off the Festival each year. Please join us!
Entertainment on the Plaza
In June 1971, the bank sponsored a free 100th anniversary concert of the Indianapolis Symphony Pops Orchestra. We continued this tradition each year through 1986. In 1987, the first “Entertainment on the Plaza” season was launched, bringing a different performance each Friday evening through June, July and August. The event was held on the newly constructed Hancock County Courthouse Plaza, hence the series name.
Entertainment on the Plaza continues and each summer eight performances are held, free to the public, in downtown Greenfield, IN on the Hancock County Courthouse south lawn (located at the corner of US 40 and SR 9) and City of Greenfield Plaza (located on SR 9). Beginning the first Friday in June and continuing eight consecutive Fridays, the event draws over 12,000 people each summer. EXCEPTION: If Independence Day falls on a Friday, the performance will be held on the Thursday evening before the holiday.
Greenfield Banking Company serves as the sole corporate sponsor to provide a non-commercial environment for the concerts. The concert series is held with the cooperation of the City of Greenfield and the Hancock County Commissioners.
Relax in a non-commercial setting in historic downtown Greenfield on the City Plaza and South lawn of the Hancock County Courthouse. Join family and friends and enjoy eight free concerts chosen to appeal to all ages and interests.
Important Update: Layout of audience seating for the 2018 Entertainment On The Plaza concert season has changed. Due to falling roof tiles from the Hancock County Courthouse and as a matter of public safety, the Hancock County Commissioners have restricted accessibility of the south Courthouse lawns. Please observe the restrictions indicated by fencing. The stage and performance area will be moved a few feet southeast of its original position. Audience seating will be on the concrete plaza with overflow onto American Legion Place. At 4 pm each Friday evening, a barricade will be posted at the entry to American Legion from US 40 (Main Street). After 4 pm, a drop off zone will be available only on the west side of the Plaza, SR 9 (State St), near the fountain.
2018 Concert Schedule:
Friday evenings from June 1 - July 20, 2018. Performances start at 7 pm.
