The Downtown New Rochelle BID will launch a new program, BID 3rd Wednesdays: PopRocs @ Memorial Plaza, starting Wednesday, August 19th from 5:00 pm to 9:00 pm with Downtown Dog Days of Summer.
Initiated by the City of New Rochelle and the Downtown BID, and produced with PopRocs USA, 3rdWedensdays will introduce pop-up events in the downtown to build on the increasingly popular and growing roster of downtown activities such as the BID Farmers Market, Family Day Programs, Dance Concerts and Sidewalk Sales.
On the 3rd Wednesday of each month, through November, a pop-up art and shopper fest will take place on Memorial Plaza creating a fun evening where downtown residents and visitors can enjoy FREE music and entertainment, check out the local art scene, trendy goodies and fabulous eats! Festivities will continue at local restaurants.
BID Executive Director Ralph DiBart stated: “With downtown’s emergent destination restaurant scene, growing downtown residential community and exciting future development plans, we wanted to bring increased attention and people to downtown and weekday pop-up events is a great and fun way.”
PopRocsUSA’s Sandro Ore noted “At the BID 3rd Wednesdays, PopRocs will offer monthly programs that bring together everyone from Baby-boomers to Millenniums like me. Downtown New Rochelle has become the perfect place for us to gather and enjoy ourselves.”
Downtown Councilman Ivar Hyden remarked: “The City and the BID’s Pop-Up initiative will bring increased traffic and excitement to our city center and is another opportunity to support our arts community.”
Each month will focus on a theme. On the 19th, 3rd Wednesdays will celebrate New Rochelle Downtown’s Dog Days of Summer centering on the large pet population that now resides in this pet friendly downtown.
