Sample the offerings at Emory Village when First Thursdays kicks off Sept. 6

A new tradition is beginning in Emory Village. ­A monthly celebration, First Thursdays in Emory Village, is designed to bring together neighbors, friends and visitors for an evening of fun that highlights the businesses in the village. The inaugural First Thursday kicks off on Sept. 6, from 6:30 to 10:30 p.m. with special activities for children and adults.

Events planned include children’s activities and a book signing at All Fired Up from 6:30 until 10:30 p.m.; Trivia Night at Saba starting at 9 p.m.; music by the Moonlighters Jazz Band at Inman Perk from 7:30 to 9:30 p.m. In addition, participating merchants will offer samples and special promotions. Various community groups host booths, and vendors will offer items for purchase such as organic produce, soap and wrapping paper.

“Not only will this evening provide Druid Hills residents and the Emory and CDC communities an opportunity to socialize with friends and neighbors, but also First Thursdays is our way of supporting the businesses of Emory Village,” said Davis Fox, president of the Alliance to Improve Emory Village. “We encourage people not familiar with the village to visit the numerous new businesses there as well as old favorites.”

First Thursdays is sponsored by AIEV, a partnership of Druid Hills neighbors, Emory Village merchants and Emory faculty and staff, with support from the Clifton Community Partnership. Each monthly celebration will feature different activities for all ages.

“We hope you will mark your calendars today to attend the monthly First Thursdays celebrations and become part of what we envision as a new tradition in the village,” said Fox.

Emory Village is located at the intersection of North Decatur Rd. and Oxford Rd. Additional parking will be available at the University’s B. Jones and Fishburne parking decks.
