Woodpark Wednesday - BRAND NEW free outdoor concert event - Downtown JTNY
Posted July 27, 2017

We're organizing a brand new FREE, ALL AGES outdoor concert event to celebrate our thriving local music and arts scene here in Jamestown. Since our monthly Third Thursday concerts have been so well received, and many of our friends had asked why we dont do them more often, we are trying something new in this beautiful, classic, underused little downtown park on the night before Lucy fest kicks off. 

The Wood Park a.k.a. Potters Terrace is located at the intersection of East Third Street & Potters Alley in the heart of downtown Jamestown

Music lineup features local legend Dave Mcdonald, as well as Kaleidoscope Sky from Salamanca, NY, and Jamestown's own Trip the Deuce . 

Come check out some great live music and help us get a new concert series off the ground. If this woodpark event is well recieved, then we will try to make it a regular monthly event for next summer. 

Thanks for your continued support

Third Thursday is a FREE, ALL AGES community arts event and concert series in downtown Jamestown NY, presented by the Active Artists Alliance. It takes place on the Third Thursday of each month in Winter Garden Plaza, right downtown next to the Wine Cellar. 

The May 16th concert will go from about 6-9 pm, with live original music by Pine Fever AND The Bogarts (The Bogarts Fan Page). Afterparty will take place at Mojo's with an additional performance by Pine Fever.

About Us

The Active Artists Alliance is a collection of people utilizing all media to reflect and shape the construction of the world we inhabit. We are a web of communities creating novel and easily replicable and forms of exhibiting art, a group of folks possessing varying interests and experience teaching each other and entering into a process that definition constantly evades, the process of living, creating and accepting responsibility for our world and its continued creation. We invite others to do the same.

Starting in 2004, as a way for a few friends to keep in touch with one another, pool resources and begin showing their art, the Alliance has grown into a worldwide organization of loosely-connected artists and friends.

Since then, the Alliance participates in an annual roster of open-air art festivals and gallery shows. We are always exploring new avenues in which to exhibit our work and combine it with any component that would allow us to meet new people and bring others into the conversation of what our work should do.

We are a collective, as defined, of artists and individuals exploring the inroads of two seemingly irreconcilable terms, individual and community. Our work is usually solitary, but our goals often intersect. Although our ultimate visions may differ, we remain compatriots in expression, discussion and action.
