(ABC 6 News) - According to a press release from the media team with Thursdays Downtown, the annual festival will be relocating for the summer of 2020, due to construction on Peace Plaza starting in the spring of 2020. 

The weekly summer street festival will likely run along First Avenue SW and extend from Second Street SW to Fourth Street SW, Third Street SW from the Third Street alley to First Avenue SW and Fourth Street SW from Second Avenue SW to Broadway Avenue. The two stages will likely be located at the intersections of Second Street and First Avenue SW and Fourth Street SW and Broadway Avenue.

“The layout direction in which we’re likely heading utilizes First Avenue, which will be familiar to attendees, and gets people experiencing the event in a new section of downtown,” RDA Executive Director Holly Masek said. 

Masek said the new layout was created with safety in mind for anyone attending the weekly summer event. 

The release said that since the Peace Plaza construction is scheduled to start in the spring of 2020, Social Ice 2020 will not be impacted.
