THELMA receives city pop up event permit to hold outdoor events

Thelma Sadoff Center of the Arts (THELMA) announced it is the recipient of a pop-up event permit from the City of Fond du Lac for the remainder of 2020.

This permit is in response to COVID-19 as a way for the organization to continue to hold outdoor events as weather allows. These events would occur Fridays, Saturdays, or Sundays.

“Patrons have become less comfortable with attending concerts if held indoors,” said Jacqui Corsi, THELMA Executive Director. “This permit gives us a chance to maintain some stability during a difficult time.”

Some of the upcoming events include an art fair and concert with Five Card Studs September 18, concert with Jacob Miller September 20, concert with Armchair Boogie September 26 and a potential spirits and beer tasting October 2.

THELMA’s outdoor concerts and other events will continue to be in front of THELMA with limited capacity to ensure social distancing. They will continue to be ticketing to ensure capacity. Tickets and more information can be found at

THELMA is located at 51 Sheboygan St., in the heart of Downtown Fond du Lac’s Arts and Entertainment District. THELMA is a member-based, privately funded non-profit dedicated to providing arts experiences not readily available in the area. Intimate concerts in the Great Hall, street concerts with major performers, indoor films, and art from world-renowned artists are available at THELMA.
