Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation Announces the Addition of Two Dates for the Third StrEATery!

– The Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation (DSDC) is excited to announce the addition of two dates for the Third StrEATery, Downtown Smithfield’s Socially Distanced Outside Dining Room and Live Entertainment Venue.  The event will continue on Friday, September 10 and Friday, October 1.
Come downtown with your family, meet up with your friends, get takeout from a downtown restaurant, and head over to Third Street from 6-9pm to hear live music, shop from local businesses, have a beer or glass of wine, or try your hand at axe throwing!  Afterward, catch a movie or enjoy drinks at one of our restaurants or bars.  The 100 block of S. Third Street will be closed, and tables and chairs will be set up in the street.
Performances will take place from 6-9pm and feature the following musicians:
September 10 - Arbor Strings, String Trio
October 1 - The Legacy Motown Revue
Several downtown businesses will be open and have special promotions.  Visit the Historic Downtown Smithfield, NC Facebook page to learn more.
“The Third StrEATery has been so well received, and the impact that it's had on our community has been wonderful!" stated Sarah Edwards, Executive Director of the Downtown Smithfield Development Corporation.  “The Third StrEATery offers attendees an opportunity to gather safely, support our locally owned small businesses, and enjoy music from a diverse lineup of musicians within the region."
In order to ensure the health and safety of everyone involved, the DSDC asks that all attendees adhere to the guidelines outlined by the State of North Carolina or local government at the time of the event.  Social distancing is encouraged, and the DSDC will provide touchless, automatic hand sanitizing stations.
