Fountain Square Activities in Full Swing This Week


3CDC kicks off the spring event season on Monday, April 4 with the return of free programming at Fountain Square every day of the week. Programming includes food truck lunches, concerts, markets, and more. All programming will take place in conjunction with Fountain Bar hours, where patrons can enjoy a beer, wine, hard seltzer, mixed drink, or soda.

The Fountain Bar opened on Fountain Square in August of 2021 providing Downtown employees, residents, and visitors with a space to order-up a drink before or after dinner, grab a soft drink during lunch, or simply to congregate during one of the Square’s many free, family-friendly events throughout the year. Fountain Square’s spring programming lineup is packed with familiar events that were held in a modified format in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID19.

“We are incredibly excited to bring back much-loved events like the Strauss Tory Market, Salsa on the Square, Spring Concert Series and more” Christy Samad, Senior Vice President of Event Management for 3CDC, said. “We are so grateful for the unwavering support of our sponsors over the past two years who helped keep the Square vibrant and active, and we’re thankful for our patrons who continued to visit. 2022 will be a great year at the Square and we look forward to sharing these experiences with everyone in the heart of Downtown.”
