Downtown Greenville’s high-profile Artisphere festival, originally scheduled for May 8-10, will now be held in August.
The new weekend, Aug. 21-23, is the first weekend after Greenville County students go back to school, said Taryn Scher, a festival spokesperson.
“The 135 artists that were selected for artist’s row from more than 990 applicants are being contacted to confirm they are available for the new dates,” Scher said.
On March 16, Greenville canceled all city-permitted events through May 10 in an effort to stop the spread of the coronavirus. City playgrounds and the Greenville Zoo were also closed.
Major events including the Reedy River Run and Reedy River Duck Derby, iMagine Upstate, March of Dimes and TD Saturday Market, have all been rescheduled.
