Thursdays Downtown dates announced, vendor applications open

(ABC 6 News) – The Rochester Downtown Alliance has announced the dates for this year’s Thursdays Downtown.

The event will start earlier this year on June 16 and go every Thursday until August 18.

"After discussions with stakeholders, our board of directors, and past Thursdays Downtown vendors, it became clear our community desires more events this summer to bring us together after a long winter,” said Kanika Couchene, RDA director of events & strategic partnerships.

"That is why we are excited to announce the addition of two Thursdays Downtown dates."

Vendors and businesses interested in being involved in Thursdays Downtown may apply now. Categories include food, beverage, and artisan. Eighty percent of a vendor’s products must be handmade. Vendors will be evaluated on their application by a jury to be accepted into the Thursdays Downtown food and artisan market.
