Music on Third Street

MARQUETTE — Marquette comes alive in the summer. And with music in the air, the sidewalks of Third Street are the place to be.

Every summer, an eclectic mix of local musicians play along the sidewalks of Marquette’s Downtown District.

“The people are here wandering. They get to see the businesses, they get to see the musicians,” explained local musician, Tyler Dettloff.

The musicians perform on the third Thursday of every month from June through September. With the added life comes the community; wandering through the streets and enjoying all that Marquette life has to offer.

“It means a lot cause it kind of legitimizes what I do on a weekly basis: go out and play music on the street, sometimes on a week night, sometimes on a weekend night and it’s nice to have the community kind of recognize that and I guess validate it as something they will enjoy officially.”

The next Music on Third Street takes place July 21st.
