3rd Thursday Street Fest

 Come for dinner,  visit friends, dance to the music, and enjoy the beautiful architecture.

 

Every 3rd Thursday from May through September, thousands of people from far and wide stroll along Main Street Willimantic amid a background of musical, theatrical, visual, and olfactory delights.

There are clowns and bands and jugglers to entertain you as you meander through the fest. Four stages simultaneously host a wide variety of music and entertainment while over 100 local and regional crafters and vendors showcase the wealth of goods produced in Connecticut.   Willimantic's diversity really shines through in the delicious authentic international cuisine. Enjoy locally produced artwork, beer, music, and soda. Free children's activities abound!

Brought to you by Willimantic Renaissance, Inc., a grassroots 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed to revitalize downtown Willimantic by celebrating diversity, building community and attracting consumers. 3rd Thursday Street Fests are truly a community event.
