THE SQUARE IS WHERE – MAY-SEPTEMBER WEEKDAYS AT LUNCH

The Square Is Where

DOWNTOWN HOUSING TOUR – MAY 11

With the highest occupancy rate in the region and hundreds of new residential units on the way, it’s clear downtown living is in demand. Check out a variety of homes, from condos and townhomes to apartments and chic urban lofts – and even get a sneak peek at some new projects still under construction – on this free tour!
Sponsored by DP&L, WHIO-TV, Vectren, and the Greater Dayton RTA.



THE GREAT DAYTON ADVENTURE RACE – JUNE 1

Team up to race against the clock to find clues throughout downtown to win cash in the competitive division, or enjoy a more relaxed non-competitive scavenger hunt and enter to win raffle prizes.
Sponsored by DP&L, Key-Ads, WHIO-TV, and Channel 999.



ART IN THE CITY – AUGUST 2

Celebrate the arts with live presentations from some of Dayton’s best performing arts groups and kick off a juried art exhibition that places local artists’ work in downtown businesses.
