We're never satisfied with the state of the local gaming community here in DuBois, PA. We're constantly trying to network, expand, and bring new people into the fold. This includes teamwork and communication with other gaming groups, gaming stores, and individual players. So no matter whether you are in Pennsylvania, Ohio, New York, Delaware, Maryland, New Jersey, or West Virgina ... you're still close enough to stay in contact and join our crew. Come roll some dice with us. We'll return the favor.

Downtown DuBois Matters

Originally By Julie Stewart, Downtown Manager

We’'re excited about our new summer series beginning in June called Thursdays Downtown!” It’s a fun-packed, downtown, outdoor open house” from 5-8 p.m. every first and third Thursday in June, July and August. It’s an opportunity for people to come downtown and get familiar. They can enjoy the evening activities, visit, dine, shop and enjoy special music.

The fun begins on Thursday, June 4th. The first event is right before the Festival of the Arts and should be a nice connection to festival activities on Friday and Saturday. Starting June 18th, Music Fest at the Cherry Amphitheater in city Park will be another nice connection. With all the sports activities and fun stuff, you could spend a lot of time in or around downtown DuBois!

Live music, food and fun activities are being planned, based around six different themes: Outdoor Café, Bike Night, Big City Life, Oldies Night, Celebrate Culture and Country in the City. All throughout the summer, we’ll be promoting summer sidewalk sales as well as food and drink specials.

These events are meant to:
-Bring regular crowds to downtown DuBois.
-Bring crowds of varied ages and interests, depending on
the themes.
-Encourage shopping opportunities from 5-8 p.m. (or longer)
on Thursdays throughout the summer.
-Provide family fun and entertainment in Downtown DuBois.
-Support local musicians and entertainers.
-Build memories among our youth of fun things in Downtown
-Encourage partnership with businesses, service organizations
and others to provide manpower and support the costs
of the events.
-Work with local and regional media outlets to promote
Thursdays Downtown.
-Provide our businesses regular opportunities to participate
in live demonstrations, unique marketing, sampling, in-store
promotions and sidewalk sales.
-Give prospective businesses another reason
to locate downtown

What are you doing Thursday nights starting June 4th?
Stop downtown and fill that spot on your social
calendar. Call the Downtown Group for more details
