About Third Friday

Every third Friday of June, July, and August, from 5 to 8 p.m., downtown Chatham will be filled with music, food, sales, entertainment, arts and crafts, and liveliness.

The first Third Friday is on June 16. It (and all the Third Fridays) is brought to you by the Historic Downtown Chatham Business Improvement Area.

Third Friday will have displays, demonstrations, and performances by Chatham-Kent organizations and talented people. There will be contests, street vendors, games, fun for children, and much more. Please see The Fridays for the increasing list.

Downtown businesses will offer specials, fun things to do, and good service. Click or tap here for a list of their offerings.

Admission to everything is free.

You can play the 3F Six Ball Grab Game, which will offered by many businesses. “Close your eyes and grab a coloured ball to win a discount on your purchase. Red balls get you 4% off, green balls get 7%, and yellow balls 9%.” Every purchase wins!

You can use our Social Media to get updates and to help promote 3F. You can also sign up for the 3F Newsletter, a weekly email report with the latest from us.

If you'd like to take part in 3F (whether as a business, an organization, an entertainer, a sponsor, etc.), please see Participate.

Each month will have a different theme. June 16 is “Handmade” (Chatham-Kent Arts And Crafts), July 21 is “Best Of The Season” (C-K Flowers, Fruits, & Vegetables), and August 18 is “Yesteryear” (C-K History). The themes are in addition to all the other 3F attractions. See The Fridays for each month's details.

Come and enjoy downtown Chatham!
