    Join MNFEA members for an exclusive look Behind The Scenes at another marquee event: Thursdays on First & 3rd in downtown Rochester.  

    Thursdays on First & 3rd Summer Market & Music Festival is a weekly outdoor market of over 100 art, craft and food vendors and live entertainment every Thursday throughout the summer. Thursdays on First & 3rd begins on June 1st and runs until August 31st. Thursdays on First & 3rd is an event that unites the Rochester community.

    Our tour will be hosted by the Downtown Rochester Alliance: the crew leading a team of volunteers and staff for this summer-long event and fundraiser. We'll meet near the Bremer Bank tent on the corner of 3rd near the stage, we'll tour the backstage area, review logistics and see the grounds - you'll also receive a free food voucher!

    If you can't make the tour, you're still welcome to join us afterwards for drinks and networking.  Cash bar is open to all.

    Parking is available in the Holiday Inn ramp at 220 S. Broadway, Rochester, MN 55904 - it's just a block away with easy access.
