3rd Friday is pleased to announce its theme line-up for the 2020 outdoor season. Downtown Salisbury’s monthly art and entertainment event uses themes to keep things exciting during the outdoor season April through November.


Some themes are fan favorites and occur every year while other themes come and go. “The themes are just a jumping off point for the local restaurants, businesses and vendors to get creative, and keep things fresh” says 3rd Friday producer Jamie Heater. No matter what theme, every 3rd Friday will be tons of fun this season.


3rd Friday kicks off the 2020 outdoor season on April 17th with ‘Spring Things’ –highlighting everything from baby animals and spring flowers, to sustainability projects and local environmental groups. May 15th will have a ‘Wheels’ theme- coinciding with National Bike Month, an annual Salisbury Skate Park fundraiser and ramp zone hosted by Get Ramped. This June, 3rd Friday is mixing up the themes with fan favorite ‘Dog Month’ getting a name makeover to ‘Paw Prints’ – highlighting not just canines, but all of our beloved pets and animal friends.


July 3rd Friday’s theme ‘Up In the Air’ is a new theme this year, and will coincide with NASA Wallop’s 75th Anniversary celebrations. August 21st’s theme will be ‘Water World’ to keep things cool, complete with waterslides and water balloons and sea creatures. September 18th, check out “Urban Artscapes” for a night of special tours, building highlights and public art. Oct 16th theme is “Super Heroes” with a comic con feel, free comics, highlights on local heroes, and a costume contest for kids and adults. The outdoor season will wrap up on November 20th with a “Holiday Lights” theme that will include the annual Holiday Tree Lighting Ceremony, as well as, a last chance to shop from the 3rd Friday vendors for everyone on your list.


This year, 3rd Friday’s footprint will be slightly different as construction progresses. The main event area will be focused on North Division Street between W. Church Street (near Cake Art) to Camden Street (near Mogan’s Oyster House), as well as, down E. Main Street from Division Street to Court Street. Road closures can be expected to affect these areas around 2 p.m. on event days. Road closure and parking closure information will be posted online.
