Rochester's popular weekly block party is back with a new name for the summer of 2019. "Thursdays Downtown", previously known as "Thursdays on First & 3rd", your favorite reason to ditch work early, to get together with friends and enjoy our beautiful summer weather, great food, drinks, and music will be held every Thursday from June through August.

Thursdays Downtown includes arts, music, food and a vendor market. Enjoy music over your lunch hour on the Thursdays Downtown stage from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m and performances are scheduled each Thursday evening at 5 and 7 p.m. on two stages!
