We’re celebrating 10 years of Third Thursday!  Did someone say FREE CUPCAKES?

Come out for the celebration on July 21 with a food theme.  Everywhere you look, there will be food!   Come get your free cupcake at the Cupcake Tent at Persip Park’s Mainstage.  Cupcakes supplied by Mikey T’s, Studious Baker and Mary’s Carrot Cake.  There will also be other anniversary surprises throughout the evening.

Third Thursday is also teaming up with the Ethnic Fair for July with food vendors throughout the half-mile stretch and Ethnic Fair performances on the stage near Park Square.

Other entertainment highlights include the bands Chain Letter and 8 Foot River on the Persip Park Mainstage.  Palace Park will feature Berkshire Theatre Group performing songs from Beauty and the Beast; Barrington Stage Company with a sneak peek of The Wiz and Pittsfield Shakespeare in the Park’s The Tempest, which debuts later that evening at the Common.

The Artscape Pittsfield Paintbox Project will be officially unveiled.

Berkshire Young Professionals will be having a scavenger hunt (you must pre-register here).

Restaurants will be out on the street including Eat on North with a Chef inspired seasonal dish served curbside.  Methuselah will be serving up tacos and beer curbside.  The Crowne Plaza will have live entertainment and a chef station outside as well as the more than 100 vendors that will fill the streets.
