Third Thursday is Joplin’s premiere community cultural event. Every third Thursday, March through October, thousands of people gather on Main Street in Downtown Joplin from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. to enjoy local artisans, music, entertainment, and food.
This August, bring your four-legged furry friends downtown to show them off and more! Our sponsors and vendors will have dog-related activities going on throughout the night and we’ll have plenty of places for them to cool off, as well.
Here is the full schedule for our 16th season of Third Thursday!

May 18: Great Adventure
