Downtown Longmont Creative District Hosts 2nd Friday Events Each Month

On the 2nd Friday of each month from 6 – 9 p.m., the Downtown Longmont Creative District features gallery openings, restaurant promotions and extended retail business hours and activities (inside and outside) taking place throughout the district. Come down to see what’s new and join the excitement.

In addition to special events, Longmont’s Brewhop Trolley offers rides during 2nd Friday for just $1/Ride all night. Hop on and off the trolley as it travels throughout the district from 1st to Longs Peak Avenues with convenient stops at popular brewpubs, galleries, restaurants and shops.

The Longmont Theatre Company features live performances including plays, musicals and classic movie nights.

Starting in 2017, each month has a theme based on Downtown Longmont’s “Own It” slogan. So far this year, January’s “Sample It” offered food samples at participating locations, February’s “Melt It” featured fire dancer performances throughout the district, and March’s “Craft It” gave visitors a chance to collect a commemorative pint glass in honor of our craft breweries and cidery. Upcoming dates and themes for 2nd Friday are listed below. For the latest news on 2nd Friday, click here. http://www.downtownlongmont.com/calendar/second-fridays

Jefe’s Tacos & Tequila is one of over 40 downtown Longmont eateries you can visit on 2nd Friday.

Participating downtown businesses will have 2nd Friday maps available the week of the event. Maps include the Brewhop Trolley route and estimated trolley stop times, special event locations and a list of open businesses in the creative district. Pick yours up at the Visit Longmont office, 512 4th Ave., #103.
