The Town of Erie is excited to announce the opening of the Historic Downtown Erie Entertainment District on Thursday, May 18, 2017! The Entertainment District will be open weekly during the Erie Farmers Market on Thursdays from 5:00 – 8:00 p.m. from May 18th – September 21st and open during the Downtown Neighborhood Block Parties on June 16, June 30, July 14, July 28 and August 11 from 6:00 – 9:00 p.m.

While the Downtown Entertainment District is open, restaurant and bar patrons that are within the Common Consumption Area will now have the option to purchase an alcoholic drink from one of the five participating establishments in a plastic to-go cup, to take outside and consume during events. The participating establishments include: Echo Brewing, Azteca, 24 Carrot Bistro, Miner’s Tavern and The Old Mine.

More Information about the Entertainment District:

The establishment of the Entertainment District is a direct result of conversations between the Town and Downtown restaurant, bar and brewery owners who make up the “Promotional Association.” The Promotional Association assumes liability for the sale of alcoholic beverages within the designated Common Consumption Area for specified dates and times only.

In order to create the Common Consumption Area, the Briggs Street and Wells intersection is closed to cars during the Farmers Market and Downtown Neighborhood Block Parties transforming the heart of Downtown into a pedestrian-friendly area
