Head to Old Worthington on the first Wednesday of each month for entertainment, food, drinks, and community with Worthington First Wednesdays from 5-8 pm. Enjoy entertainment on Dewey’s plaza, dine or drink, and visit shops until 8 pm. Plus, you can grab an adult beverage as you wander! The D.O.R.A. will be in effect, so adults can purchase alcoholic beverages in to-go cups and explore the district. It’s a great way to get over the hump day blues!
Each month brings a new theme, activities and a volunteer opportunity at one of the COhatch locations in Worthington. Check on the website for more detail.
