Downtown Arts District expanding Third Thursday Orlando: Here’s what to expect

ORLANDO, Fla. — Third Thursday Orlando is back bigger and better with even more art offerings.

The Downtown Arts District is expanding its free event series to include live entertainment, a makers mark and entrance to the Orange County History Center.


The expansion allows attendees to buy $10 wristbands for drink specials, and access to other participating downtown venues.

Officials said the expansion is thanks to new partnerships with City District Main Street, Dr. Phillips Center for the Performing Arts and the Orange County Regional History Center.
