Third Thursdays return tonight to downtown Madison

Third Thursdays are coming back for a second year to downtown Madison this month on Thursday, May 18.

Food trucks, live music, and family-friendly activities will descend upon Main Street for the first Third Thursday of the season. The series began last year as an event hosted by the Shoppes of Historic Downtown Madison, which is self-described as “a collaborative effort of multiple businesses located in downtown Madison.”

According to Shannon Fisher, co-owner of Lemon & Lavender, “Third Thursdays on Main began in 2022 to bring our community to beautiful historic downtown Madison. Our hope is for these events to continue to grow and bring in more businesses, activities for families to enjoy.”

The Shoppes of Historic Downtown Madison have put on several other events over the past year including the Wassail Festival and Spring Fling.

Third Thursdays are their annual summer season events that take place from May to August. They are opportunities for family fun in summer evenings while supporting local businesses. Participating stores downtown will stay open past normal operating hours until 8 pm and will also have pet water bowls set up outside their storefronts to welcome the furry family members that tag along.

This Thursday, May 18, will open the 2023 season with six food trucks, including Happi Pappi Beignets, and Travelin’ Toms Coffee, a meditation session with Maria Brito, an animal showcase with Animal Traxx, and a bounce house for the kids. All the fun will take place from 4-8 pm. Main Street will be closed to traffic for the event beginning at 3:30.
