Meet our Partners: IBM Rochester

Thursdays on First & 3rd is quickly becoming a downtown Rochester summer tradition. With its unique selection of artisan vendors, delicious street eats, and energetic live entertainment, our partners like IBM team up with the Rochester Downtown Alliance to make Rochester's summer tradition possible.

IBM Rochester is proud to partner with Thursdays on First & 3rd as we celebrate 60 Years of Innovation in 2016!

The unique venue and offerings of Thursdays on First & 3rd - smack in the heart of Rochester with live music, delicious street food, and artisan vendors – is the perfect place to share our celebration with the Rochester community, business associates, our employees, and former IBMers. With a history that spans computer technology from the programmable era, through to this decade’s birth of cognitive computing systems and solutions, IBM Rochester has been a stalwart contributor to the IBM Corporation.

Our demos and displays at Historic 3rdStreet will honor both our history and our transformation. We invite everyone to bring their curiosity to our tents on July 14 to learn how today’s technology is changing the way we live, work and play in a data-driven, smarter and social world. Come chat with our employees, reminisce, interact with Watson cognitive apps and our Nao robot, learn about the Internet of Things with interactive apps, explore the STEM projects that area middle schoolers build each year during Engineers Week, spin the IBM Wheel of Knowledge to win a prize, and pick up a balloon for the kids! Our goal is that you will be entertained and enlightened as to what goes on behind the Big Blue walls. Check the Thursdays on First Themed Thursdays page for an hour-by-hour schedule. We look forward to seeing you!
