ROCHESTER, Minn. (KTTC) – Thursdays Downtown is now accepting artisan and bar/restaurant vendor applications for the 2023 year.

Thursdays Downtown is a weekly summer music, arts, and vendor festival that takes place every Thursday from June 15 through August 17, 2023.

Eighty percent of a vendor’s products must be handmade. Vendors will be evaluated on their application by a jury to be accepted into the Thursdays Downtown food and artisan market. Event coordinators say this is a great opportunity for vendors to jump start their businesses.

“Every Thursday we have more than 20,000 people come down and enjoy so it’s high visibility, it also gets them into the community so if they’re a small business and people don’t know where they are located or what they are all about, it’s a really easy way for them to get their name out there,” director of events Kanika Couchene said.

An application link and more details about Thursdays Downtown can be found at here.

“People love to be able to support local and so I think that is one of the big charms about what Thursday’s Downtown, people can come they can find something they might not have realized this community has to offer so I really think that is a benefit for the small businesses,” Couchene said.

Applications will remain open until March 31, 2023.
