February 26th through March 4th is the week we’ve all been waiting for. The week that makes our mouths water, our stomachs growl, and our eyes widen: the Seventh Annual Traverse City Restaurant Week.
For this week, you can enjoy a three course dinner at all participating restaurants for only $30! The restaurants shown below will all be a part of this delicious event! This year, we have partnered with Taste the Local Difference, with most restaurants committed to using at least 20% local ingredients for their restaurant week dishes.
The menus for this event will be available at www.downtowntc.com, with menus being posted as they are submitted. Reservations for TCRW are highly encouraged!
We will be doing the #TCRW Instagram Photo competition again this year! Take a photo of your dishes throughout the week and use the hashtag #TCRW for a chance to win $50 in Downtown gift certificates! It's that easy!
You can also sign up to win a $50 gift certificate from each participating restaurant in TCRW by simply visiting the MyNorth website.
The Parking Office which serves as the Violations Bureau will be under construction starting on January 27th through May 2017.
For daytime hours (weekdays before 6pm) The office staff will be stationed close by at the Downtown Development Authority Office to process citation payments, sell permits and assist with general parking inquiries. The cashier for the Hardy Parking Garage will remain in the office to assist hourly parkers. The Downtown Development Authority is located at 303 East State Street, Suite C, nestled between Scalawags and the drive through entrance to the Hardy Parking deck. For evening hours (weekdays after 6pm and weekends) A cashier at the Hardy Parking Garage will process parking citation and sell permits.

Merchant deadline for Presidents’ Weekend Sale event is February 13th. For more information, please email email@example.com.
Snow Removal & the Coveted Golden Shovel
Business owners, please remember to keep your sidewalks clean and free of snow and ice throughout the winter season. If possible, try to pile the snow around trees and keep the meters and bike racks clear. Also, for those businesses near bumpouts, please do NOT pile snow in the bumpouts, but rather help keep them tidy by clearing snow from them. The merchant that helps lead this charge and shows exemplary work removing snow will be rewarded with the Golden Shovel. Get your shovels ready to take home the gold! We will be taking nominations all winter!
Call for Artists
The DTCA will again host three Art Fairs during the 2017 summer season. Applications for arts and crafts vendors are now being accepted for the Old Town Arts & Crafts Fair on Sunday, June 25, the National Cherry Festival Arts & Crafts Fair on Sunday, July 2 and the Downtown Art Fair on Saturday, August 19.
