About the Trailblazer Park

Located in Travelers Rest, SC near the Blue Ridge Mountains and Furman University, Trailblazer Park features panoramic mountain views, a covered pavilion that hosts the Travelers Rest Farmers Market, festival grounds, and an open-air amphitheater. Cyclists and pedestrians can access Trailblazer Park via a spur trail connection to the GHS Swamp Rabbit Trail, a multi-use greenway system that runs along the Reedy River connecting the old railway system between Greenville and Travelers Rest.

A beautiful concert venue, the Amphitheater at Trailblazer Park offers everyone an opportunity to enjoy FREE, live music and entertainment outdoors during the pleasant, South Carolina spring, summer and fall seasons. Visit the events page for a listing of performances and plan to join us Saturday evenings to enjoy superb music performed live by the best local and touring bands in the country.

Plan on bringing your lawn chairs or a blanket!
The Amphitheater has grassy areas for seating on the terraces facing center stage and the surrounding area to accommodate up to 1,500 visitors.

During our Music in the Park Concert Series Trailblazer Park will host local food vendors and trucks serving a variety of fine foods and beverages. There will also be a craft beer and wine stand located in the park for your convenience.
