Welcome to Main Street’s First Thursdays on Main. We’re excited to announce that it now stretches from the Columbia City Hall to the SC Statehouse, and it lasts from 6pm-10pm on the first Thursday of EVERY month!
The event is a loose collaboration between the merchants on Main Street, spearheaded primarily by Frame of Mind, anastasia & Friends, Wine Down on Main, Carolina Hair Studios, the Arcade, and Tapp’s Art Center. Over five years ago, Frame of Mind opened its first art show in an effort to attract attention to their business and the street as a whole. This began a monthly series of art shows with an ever increasing attendance. Within a year, a new gallery opened (anastasia & Friends) and a well-established art supply company relocated on Main Street (S&S Art Supply). As momentum gained, Tapp’s Art Center opened its doors. The most recent additions include Michael’s Cafe, Good Life Cafe, First Citizen’s Cafe, Cantina 76 and Bourbon.
As an organic and concerted effort among the many fabulous Main Street businesses, we pride ourselves on being an event for the people by the people. Come out and enjoy!
