The Syndicate, a new ‘social district,’ is back for its second year in Downtown Farmington, which was started to help businesses get through COVID and the slower winter months.

In the district, patrons can purchase alcoholic beverages from participating downtown bars and restaurants and enjoy in designated outdoor areas such as closed streets and Riley Park. The park has a heated pavilion for drinking/eating and many of the bars have heated patios and shelter from the weather.

The city is also offering free admission to the Riley Park Ice Rink this winter.
