Art. Music. Community.

Hutch Rec is excited to now facilitate Hutchinson’s popular Third Thursday in Downtown Hutchinson, continuing the focus of art, music, and community. Each month will center around a focus, as we encourage businesses, groups, artists, and musicians to become involved as they see fit. Hutch Rec will oversee the communication and marketing of the event, as well as the specifics and layout of each month’s event.
