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, retail businesses who have online stores and virtual downtown events you can enjoy. Here's a special bonus 3rd Thursday Spotify playlist featuring almost 2 hours of Akron musicians!

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)
