TIFFIN – The downtown retailers and Main Street Marketing Committee released the upcoming schedule for downtown Third Thursdays. They will begin on March 21 and continue every month through the end of 2019. 

Following a successful test run in 2018, community members, local businesses and restaurants have partnered to again bring themed evenings to Downtown Tiffin through Third Thursdays. Every third Thursday will have a theme, and participating businesses and restaurants will have special hours and are encouraged to incorporate the theme through decorations, a special menu item, crafts, music and more. Any downtown business or organization may participate.

Similar events have occurred for many years throughout the United States, but these events let Tiffin bring its own spin on the monthly events. The first two Third Thursdays for 2019 are March 21, St. Patrick’s Day Shenanigans with Clover Club as the featured restaurant, and April 18, Blooming Artist Stroll, featuring artists and musicians in downtown businesses.

“These events allow Tiffin to showcase some of our great businesses and restaurants for people who maybe haven’t been downtown in a while,” said Susan Wilkinson, chair of the Downtown Marketing Committee and owner of Simply Susan’s.

Tiffin Mayor Aaron Montz said he is excited to see these monthly events take place in Downtown Tiffin: “Third Thursdays were a hit last year, and we are confident it will attract more residents and visitors to our downtown.”
