Saint Mary’s part of Rochester summer festival
Each Thursday throughout the summer, from June 5 through Aug. 28, Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota will have a presence at Rochester’s Thursdays on first & 3rd Summer Market and Music Festival.
The annual summer festival unites the Rochester area and provides free entertainment and social options every Thursday from 12:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Stop by the main stage any Thursday to visit with Saint Mary’s University staff or learn about our graduate and professional programs available in Rochester at the Heintz Center.
“Saint Mary’s University is happy to be a part of the Thursdays on first & 3rd Summer Festival,” said Rochester Center Director Laurie Roy. “This event truly brings the people of Rochester and southeastern Minnesota together. Plus, there’s something for everyone: music and other entertainment, uniquely hand-crafted items, interactive activities and fabulous food. It is a privilege to bring talented individuals to the forefront by sponsoring the Arts and Culture Live! stage.”
