Summer Thursdays 2024

Apr 9 / Events

Thursday is the new Friday! Join us on The Green every Thursday for weekly kids’ events and activities. Enjoy room to play, sit, relax, and unwind in the fresh air and sunshine while the little ones enjoy activities all summer long.

TICKETS are required for children for all events. Caregivers do not need a ticket. We will not be accepting walk-ins due to capacity, so please be sure to sign-up in advance. Ticket proceeds from select events will benefit various community organizations. If you purchased a ticket and are no longer able to attend, please request a refund at least 24 hours before the event to make room for another child.

In the event of rain or extreme heat, events may be canceled, moved, or postponed. Please look out for an e-mail regarding event changes or stay up to date by following @derbystshops.
