Celebrate in a Big Way…
Get ready to have a blast in Your Downtown
Downtown Dayton is the site for many large-scale events throughout the year, three of which the Downtown Dayton Partnership coordinates. As more information on festivals and events becomes available, you'll find it all here. There’s nothing like celebrating in style in the center city!
Coming up next...
Walk on the creative side of downtown at Urban Nights - a free event that showcases downtown's dining, nightlife, art, music, retail, urban living options and more! 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 special discounts, artists and galleries open their doors to the public, musicians and entertainers of all kinds perform throughout the 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.
