There's a new event in town - 3rd Thursday debuts on June 15

As an evolution of the long-running Akron Artwalk, 3rd Thursday is a new monthly event highlighting arts, culture, cuisine and entertainment in downtown. Take the free trolley to more than 20 destinations from the Northside District to The University of Akron for art, music, events, shopping and dining the third Thursday of each month from 5-9 p.m.

This exciting event will introduce visitors to independent destinations, events and activities that establish Downtown Akron as an arts and culture destination. Each month has a different theme, so come often and experience something new every time.
