The first Friday of every month brings special happenings in Downtown Ironwood--from live music events, art exhibits, extended retail store hours, and pop-up shops, to in-season Farmer's and Artisan's market. Ironwood's new City Square, Depot Park, the Art Park, selected downtown businesses, and the Historic Ironwood Theatre all provide venues for a wide variety of theme-focused activities.
