May 15, 2020 is the next 3rd Friday in Downtown Salisbury, and with stay-at-home orders still in effect – 3rd Friday is going virtual. May’s theme was scheduled to be wheels, with highlights on skateboards, bicycles, color wheels, pottery demos and the like – and now the event will do the same things – just online. Tune on to live updates on the 3rd Friday website and social media for live links, photo albums, artist highlights, shopping and more.

Everyone can participate in Virtual 3rd Friday by sending in either photos of your favorite ‘wheels’ or pictures of artwork you are currently making or have for sale. Were looking for awesome pictures of 3rd Friday fans, and local artisans showing off their wares. Messages from downtown businesses and restaurants will also be shared, plus there are two SBY Take-Out Bingo cards in circulation right now with incentive to carryout locally for a chance to win big!
For live music, the City of Salisbury’s ISO Lounge will feature local guitarist and vocalist Ryan Jackson, one of the founding members of the Permilla Project scheduled to play at this month’s event. The City of Salisbury ISO Lounge has been featuring living room concerts by local musicians complete with virtual tip jars on the City’s face book page at 8 p.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays in an effort to support local musicians, and inspire connection.
Multiple artists will be highlighted with demos, live streams, and links to online shopping. Rowdy Gal Mud Hud, soon to open a studio Downtown, will be sharing a pre-recorded pottery demo, and Amused Studios will be going live with pottery wheel demonstrations! Lurking Class Skate Shop will share one of their epic skate videos, and the National Folk Festival will also be sharing something special from their archives just for 3rd Friday.
