May 24, 2019
PITTSBURG, KS – The City of Pittsburg’s Downtown Advisory Board (DAB) is hosing Pittsburg’s first 620 Day. The event is set for Thursday, June 20, from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm inside the Farmer’s Market Pavilion, located at the corner of 11th and Broadway Streets.
Food, music and vendors will be set up inside the pavilion and the DAB will distribute downtown passports to attendees during the event. Shoppers who get their passports stamped by five participating downtown shops, and turn them back in by 8:00 pm that evening, will receive a free 2019 Downtown Pittsburg tote bag. Merchants are encouraged to remain open until 8:00 pm and provide discounts or special offers.
The idea of 620 Day – or June 20 – comes from Pittsburg’s area code. The purpose of this day is to cultivate pride and celebrate the Pittsburg community.
The DAB is accepting applications from businesses, food vendors and other organizations who would like to participate. There is no fee to apply, but participants must register in advance.
Vendors or downtown merchants interested in participating must complete the online application at https://www.pittks.org/events/620-day/. The deadline to apply is Monday, June 10, at 5:00 pm.
For questions, contact City of Pittsburg Assistant Planner Brittan Brenner at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The mission of the Downtown Advisory Board is to coordinate and significantly increase downtown events and activities, and improve and protect the character, charm, and integrity of the downtown infrastructure.
