Programming Board is excited for the return of our Green Key Weekend concert, and we know many of your are as well. We anticipate that a large number of young alumni who graduated in 2020 and 2021 and missed Green Key the last two years will be making the trip back to Hanover to enjoy the show/weekend. In past years, the Town has expressed concern that events throughout Green Key weekend have strained campus and community safety resources, and we want to be sure that our first Green Key since 2019 is not also our last. We are working closely with the College and the Town of Hanover to do our part to ensure that this year's concert is safe and successful.
We believe it is essential that this event runs smoothly and remains well managed to encourage safety at this event, and also to safeguard the Town's approval of future outdoor concerts. One of the easiest ways for us to do this is to reduce attendance by non-Dartmouth students. Additionally, the guest registration and wristband distribution process has historically been time and labor intensive for PB, and our current membership numbers do not allow for this. We are working overtime just to plan and staff the concert. In spite of these limitations, we felt it was important to allow this opportunity for recent alumni who missed their last Green Key due to COVID.
For this reason, attendance at this year's PB Green Key Concert this year will be limited to current Dartmouth students, with NO GUESTS EXCEPT for Dartmouth alumni who graduated in 2020 and 2021. Many of our Ivy peers are allowing no guests (including alumni) at their spring concerts this year, so we are excited to be able to welcome back '20s and '21s.
Everyone who plans to attend the concert will need to register for a wristband, and wristbands will be required for access to the concert. Registration for current students and members of the Dartmouth classes of 2020 and 2021 can be found HERE. Pay attention to emails from PB for more information about claiming your wristband for the concert.
This guest policy applies ONLY to the PB concert. Green Key events are planned by a variety of student organizations, and other event organizers will set their own guest policies for their events, in alignment with current College policies and Town permits.
