Third Thursday Street Festival

Home|Destination Sheridan|Events and Festivals|Third Thursday Street Festival

A shopping extravaganza with a festive flair, Sheridan’s Third Thursday Street Festivals are a beloved summer tradition.

Beginning in June, from 5-9 p.m. on the third Thursday in each summer month through September, Grinnell Plaza and Main Street from Loucks Street to Alger Avenue are closed to car traffic and become a walking mall that features local artisans, food vendors, social organizations, live music and activities for kids and adults alike.

The smells of fresh-cooked, food cart goodies mingle with the sounds of music and conversation as locals and tourists interact on the warm summer evenings and enjoy some outdoor shopping.

Sponsored by the Sheridan County Chamber of Commerce and the Downtown Sheridan Association, Third Thursday includes special highlights for each month’s festival. A few favorites have included a watermelon eating contest for kids and a Blue Ribbon Steak Cook-off that made mouths water for anyone within smelling distance.

There is no admission charge, and it is estimated that 2,500-3,000 people gather to partake in each month’s event.
