We’ve been big fans of all the activity happening downtown on the third Thursday of the month.
There’s the Downtown Arts District’s Third Thursday Gallery Hop, the Church Street District’s Taste of Church Street, Orlando Tech’s Tech Meetup and the Downtown Orlando Partnership’s Social, all taking place on the third Thursday each month.
Now the organizations are getting together to help market and coordinate all of the activities. Most of the events happen in a corridor that runs down Pine St from Magnolia Ave to Orange Ave and then down Church St [GMap].
Organizers say they plan to add a street art team to coordinate visual, music, and performance art along the suggested corridor to connect the various events.
They hope to continue to grow the event over time as other downtown organizations get involved.
