Shopping, dining, & music set for Thomasville’s first Friday sip & shop 10/6

Get ready to groove and indulge in some retail therapy at the City of Thomasville’s First Friday Sip & Shop on October 6th. From 6 to 8 pm, enjoy extended shopping hours and delectable dining from local restaurants and area food trucks, with a free concert at The Ritz Amphitheater from 8 to 10 pm.

“Our First Friday Sip & Shop events are something our community looks forward to each month, especially as the weather gets cooler,” noted Main Street Manager Brandy Avery. “They serve as great opportunities to show some love to our local businesses by shopping and dining with them.”

Shops and restaurants are rolling out the red carpet with “Shop the Block” discounts and special offers that will keep your wallet happy all night long. A list of discounts can be found on the Downtown Thomasville Facebook page.

Special Events Manager Nicole Elwell says there’s even more First Friday fun to enjoy this month. Musician Kyle Parker is bringing live music to the streets of Thomasville from 6-8 pm. “With the addition of street entertainment, we want to create a more festive spirit,” said Elwell. “When music lingers through our Downtown streets, people have more reasons to celebrate and get out and explore our city.”

This month’s main concert features Blues Hall of Fame Inductee Mac Arnold and his band Plate Full O’ Blues. Mac is known as the real deal when it comes to playing the blues, serving up a mix of classic favorites and original tunes. Past attendees can vouch for him as being a First Friday favorite. The band will take the stage at The Ritz Amphitheater from 8-10 pm.

Attendees can also pick up a free arm band from any participating business and enjoy an adult beverage throughout the Downtown area. For more information, visit or call the Thomasville Visitors Center at 229-228-7977.
