Description:

Just weeks after announcing the relocation of its corporate headquarters to the Scott Building, Downtown Tucsons Providence Service Corporation has agreed to underwrite the costs of a monthly arts and entertainment event series to be held the second Saturday of every month beginning in May. The event will feature street vendors and performers, food, musicians, visual arts, pop-up retailers, indoor concerts, and discounts from Downtown merchants, restaurants and clubs stretching the length of Congress and including many Downtown side streets.

Initial steering committee members include Fletcher McCusker, Providence CEO, along with Luke Cusack, operator of Sapphire, Zen Rock, and A Steak in the Neighborhood, David Slutes of Hotel Congress, John Flano Flanagan, owner of Flanagans Celtic Corner, developer Michael Keith, representing The Screening Room, and Nicole Flowers, who with her partner Travis Reese owns the new restaurant 47 Scott.

Downtown community members will be asked to join the event board or participate in the event. Local media, including Zocalo Magazine and KXCI Community Radio, have offered support. Additional financial support has been pledged by Sundt Construction, the Tucson Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, the Alliance of Construction Trades, Oasis Tucson, and Mesquite Builders.

The excitement Downtown right now is contagious, said Fletcher McCusker. The new business energy, initiatives and progress is unlike anything I have seen in Tucson. We are pleased to be a small part.

Ward 6 City Council Member Steve Kozachik, who represents much of the Downtown area, has pledged his full support and has already requested of the city manager to open the Citys parking garages for free for the event. Council Member Kozachik stated, It will take private sector initiatives like this to really change the character of Downtown. The governments role should be to support and encourage these kinds of efforts, especially in a tight economy. Providence and the other organizers of this event are real catalysts for a new-found excitement and synergy in Downtown Tucson.
