Third Thursday in Downtown Akron
Posted July 17, 2017
If you are looking for a new way to experience Akron, check out the 3rd Thursday series, a new monthly event by the Downtown Akron Partnership that highlights downtown's best arts, culture, cuisine and entertainment offerings.
Hop on the free trolley and indulge in some of the city's top art, music, shopping and dining destinations from the Northside District to the University of Akron and points in between. More than 20 destinations are participating in the event, which takes place the third Thursday of each month, 5-9 p.m.
The event, an evolution of the Akron Artwalk series held the first Saturday of each month, aims to introduce visitors and residents to independent destinations, events and activities and establish the city as a destination for all things art and culture. http://www.downtownakron.com/explore/3rd-thursday
