Lyons Last Thursdays

The Lyons Arts and Humanities Commission and the Economic Development Commission are pleased to announce the first annual Lyons Last Thursdays - an evening artwalk celebration, with a voucher incentive. On each Last Thursday of the summer, participating businesses will showcase a visual or performing artist, special culinary delight or cocktail creation, or another art form, and special time-limited $7 vouchers will be offered to recipients, in exchange for completion of a short survey.
Lyons Last Thursdays / Art Walk is a celebration of the arts essence of Lyons, and an opportunity to expand commerce via a town-wide creative collaboration.


The vouchers will be available at specific locations (announced in advance) throughout town, between 4 and 6 p.m.
Vouchers can be used ‘same as cash’ at participating businesses, who feature a Lyons Last Thursdays sign on their door, and are accepted for a value of up to $7; buyers can pay any additional cost over $7 with their own cash money. The vouchers are valid from the Thursday issued through the following Sunday – a total of 4 days.
Vouchers have no cash value; buyers will not receive change for purchases less than $7 value.

How does it work?

By expanding offerings & evening hours of operations for participating businesses, restaurants & service-providers on the Last Thursday of each month.
Through intentional partnering between business entities AND interested creative resources - regional artists, performers, photographers, musicians, writers, etc.
No charge to participate
