JAMESTOWN – The final Third Thursday concert of the season will take place Thursday from 6 to 9 p.m. at Winter Garden Plaza on North Main Street.
The final installment of the free outdoor concert series will feature local bands Qwister and the Bogarts with support from the Buffalo-based band Aircraft. Third Thursday is made possible through a collaboration between the Active Artist Alliance and the Jamestown Renaissance Corporation.
Just over five years ago, the JRC oversaw the demolition of the long-vacant Winter Garden Theater and the installation of the small urban park that has become a gathering space for a variety of community events including the Great Jamestown Chalk Walk and the Great Jamestown Sauce Off.
Funding for the Third Thursday concert series is coming this year from a newly launched JRC program, the Downtown and Riverfront Event Competition. The program accepts event proposals on a rolling basis “that draw visitors and local residents to enjoy community assets, patronize local businesses, and add vitality to public spaces” according to the program’s guidelines. More information about the program and how to apply can be found here on the JRC Web site.
