Walk on downtown's creative side!

What is Urban Nights?
Urban Nights is a free event that showcases downtown's dining, nightlife, art, music, retail, urban living options and more twice a year - once in the spring and once in the fall. The event has been described as a huge, all-inclusive street party and open house for downtown, with something for everyone to enjoy.

Businesses and restaurants offer specials, artists and galleries open their doors to the public, musicians and entertainers of all kinds perform throughout the center city, and several of downtown's urban living options are open for tours. More than 100 creative places and spaces are part of the event, including locations throughout downtown, the Oregon District and the Wright-Dunbar Business Village.

Typically, more than 30,000 people are expected to pack the streets, so come join the fun and experience your downtown!

More information about the next Urban Nights will be posted closer to the event date. If you have questions about Urban Nights or want more information, email This email address is being protected from spam bots, you need Javascript enabled to view it - or call her at (937) 224-1518 ext. 227.
