3rd Thursday highlights downtown destinations

3rd Thursday, Digital Edition!

Due to circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak, we are not able to experience 3rd Thursday in person this month. There are still a number of ways to support downtown businesses and artists though!

Check out the 3rd Thursday flyer for a list of restaurants offering carry out and delivery services, and retail businesses who have online stores. 

Then, tune in to the DAP and 3rd Thursday Facebook pages for live performances by Dan Wilson at 6 p.m. and Shelby Olive at 7 p.m.

3rd Thursday is a monthly excursion highlighting arts, culture, cuisine and entertainment in downtown. Take the free trolley to more than 30 destinations from the Northside District to Main/Exchange Streets for art, music, events, shopping and dining the third Thursday of each month from 4-8 p.m.

The goal is to introduce visitors to independent destinations, events and activities that establish downtown Akron as an arts and culture destination every day of the week.

Trolley Stops: Northside District (1); N. High Street (2); Akron-Summit County Public Library (3); Cascade Plaza (4); Lock 4/Towpath Trail (5); Exchange/Main Streets (6); Main/State Streets (7); Quaker Square (8); Summit Street (9)
