Third Thursday’s Drawn Together: A Downtown Art Walk
This event is an expansion of the popular Third Thursday Concert Series hosted at Winter Garden Plaza in downtown Jamestown. Building on the fun artistic energy of Third Thursday, Drawn Together is a downtown art walk highlighting many of downtown’s arts organization and arts oriented businesses, with the occasional surprise thrown in. 

Third Thursday Concert Series @ Winter Garden Plaza
313 N Main St – 6 to 9 pm.

On this evening, the sounds of power pop music will float throughout downtown Jamestown. Buffalo’s Letter to Elise songs are characterized by catchy hooks, dynamic pop-rock sensibility, intricate guitar work, and being one of the first bands in the last decade to feature an electric cello, indie-rock group. Letter to Elise is proving itself to be one of the hottest new acts coming out of the Western New York area. Also from Buffalo, Karma Queen plays tunes that would make Sheryl Crow and Jenny Lewis so proud. Their acoustic rock-based songs are the perfect soundtrack to summer. A growing presence in the music scene, Warren, PA’s Kallie Williams will play a ukulele-infused tweener set.

Chautauqua Art Gallery – 318 N Main St – 5 to 8 pm 
ArtScape participants Susan Gutierrez, Kim Weber, and Sandra Maggio will be on hand discussing their work. 

Pearl City Clay House – 220 E 2nd St – 5-6pm 
You are invited to witness the magic unfold as approximately 10 participants each month take on the challenge of the pottery wheel or hand-building clay pieces. With a live narrator guiding the audience through the action, spectators will be treated to an immersive experience, gaining insight into the techniques and artistry behind each creation.

This free and open-to-the-public event is an excellent opportunity for community members to learn more about Pearl City Clay House, support local artists, and immerse themselves in the artistic atmosphere of Downtown Jamestown. Attendees are encouraged to arrive early and make a night of it by enjoying the festivities before the Third Thursday concerts in Downtown Jamestown this summer.

Third Thursday Concert Series @ Winter Garden Plaza
313 N Main St – 6 to 9 pm.

A celebratory funk and reggae party in Winter Garden Plaza will be the perfect way to close out the 2024 Third Thursday Series. One of WNY’s most beloved bands, Jamestown’s Smackdab will headline the performance. The band only plays a few times a year, so anytime they hit the stage it’s a blissful event. Buffalo’s Olmsted Dub System will bust out the reggae and turn Winter Garden Plaza into a big dance party. The band consists of some of the Queen City’s most highly regarded musicians.
