Over the course of a week, Thrival is the platform for over two dozen original innovation-focused events, presented by top-level thought leaders and organizations.  Each day's programs will be inspired by a specific theme and take place in a different neighborhood around the city.

Evening programs, known as “Thrival Marquee Events,” will include featured speakers, the festival’s third-annual “PIT Talks,” pitch showcases, a podcast launch with WESA 90.5 FM’s Josh Raulerson, and a block party at Bakery Square, among other programs. Thrival week will conclude with a two-day outdoor concert at Hazelwood’s Almono site.
