Rediscover Downtown Events!
As we begin to safely resume gathering and rediscovering all the great things downtown has to offer, we’re especially excited to get back to all the fun events we’ve missed so much!
There’s always something fun going on downtown! Below you’ll find a list of events scheduled for today. Use the filters at the top to find events by date, keyword, and more. You can also view the calendar by month or as a list of 20 events at a time.
Have an event to submit to our calendar? If it is located downtown (within our service area) and open to the public, it’s likely we’ll include it. Send us your event info using our event submission form.

Friday evening’s event is the kick off to the LGBTQ+ festivities in Dayton. Affair on The Square is a casual evening of live bands followed by an always amazing Rubi Girls show! We’ll have food trucks and beverages available for purchase.
Saturday begins with the PRIDE Parade. With candy, freebees, and of course PRIDE, what is not to like about this yearly Parade. Due to its great success last year, we are bringing our ‘Reverse Parade’ back for 2021. Decorate your cars and join us and show your proud to be part of Dayton’s LGBTQ+ community.
The Pride festival continues after the PRIDE parade. With live entertainment, vendors and of course food, this is an event you cannot miss! We encourage you to bring the whole family, and provide a section just for kids that includes activities for all ages.
