TT 101: Third Thursdays (TT) started in 2008 by local artist collaboration in downtown Hutchinson who shared a passion for art, music, and community. Community-driven projects and events are hosted in celebration of art, music, and community. Activities are focused in downtown Hutchinson, encourage supporting local business, and feature live music and food trucks. Third Thursday happens year-round; most outdoor activities and live music takes place in the outdoor season, March to October. Anyone can get information about the upcoming Third Thursday and talk to other locals about their plans at the monthly TT Tailgate on the last Tuesday of the month at the Foxtrot.
