Mark your calendars for April 15! In collaboration with our vibrant artist community and downtown art galleries and merchants, your Downtown Medford Association (DMA) Promotions Committee is helping to relaunch the popular event with Third Friday Medford: Food, Music, Art on Friday, April 15 from 5-8p throughout downtown Medford.
We have been working closely with our local independent artists to connect them with our downtown businesses for showings, displays, live art performances, and more. Artists will showcase their talents and pop up businesses will sell their wares in Middleford Alley. We are booking favorite local food trucks to provide great food, complementing the delicious offerings of downtown restaurants open during the event. Local musicians will provide an energetic vibe to downtown during the event. The Holly Theater will sponsor the DMA tent in Vogel Plaza for questions, first aid and engagement with our Medford neighbors.
The Week-Of Schedule – what to expect and how you can help:
Sunday, April 10: Downtown Clean Up Day
