The Pleasanton Downtown Association is excited to announce some big changes for our 2014 1st Wednesday Street Parties.
Executive Director, Laura Olson, shared, “Our goal has always been for the community to enjoy gathering and celebrating at our downtown events. After listening to feedback from many people and in an effort to keep 1st Wednesdays a wonderful, family friendly event we are pleased to announce the following changes for this season!”
- NEW ENTERTAINMENT GARDEN - We have decided to no longer serve beer and wine during 1st Wednesdays. Instead we will turn the parking lot located at 530 Main Street into our family and pet friendly Entertainment Garden! We will feature an awesome band each month and have ample seating where you can kick back, relax, eat and have fun! If you are in the mood for a cocktail or adult beverage, we will have a list of places in Downtown offering great 1st Wednesday beverage deals!
- EXPANDED FARMERS MARKET - You have told us how much you love having a Farmers Market at 1st Wednesdays so we are expanding the market and moving it closer to the heart of the event. You can now find our certified Farmers Market on St. Mary Street from 6-9pm during each 1st Wednesday!
- ARTBLOCK - We will continue to host incredible artists and artisans at our growing ArtBlock located on E. Angela Street. Stroll the street and discover a wealth of talent from painters, sculptors, jewelers and more! Plus there will be live music each month!
- MUSIC, MUSIC & MUSIC - In addition to the featured band in the Entertainment Garden, we will be welcoming musicians throughout 1st Wednesdays! Local bands, youth groups & others will be featured in various locations during the event season.
1st Wednesdays are where we can all gather, celebrate and enjoy the heart of our community! We invite you to come downtown and rediscover 1st Wednesdays! Be sure to follow the PDA on Facebook, Twitter & Instagram to be the first to know about downtown events & activities!
