Organizers say that things will be different this year as guidelines and protocol will have a presence. Look for things like social distancing, limited or no children’s activity space, dedicated blanket areas, masks, etc. Some aspects may be required to attend and others simply guidelines. Details of all protocol are changing as restrictions change. There will be updates but for now plan to wear a mask when not on your blanket at your designated space while social distancing by six feet.
Lyrics on the Lawn concerts are family friendly and open to all. Folks are encouraged to bring a lawn chair to put in your space/blanket. They are welcome to bring a picnic supper or purchase food from one the event food vendors, Creamy Cup, Top Dog Catering, and Main Street: Greeneville, or other area restaurants, to enjoy during the performances. Customers will need to practice social distancing while in line for food purchases.
