We’re excited to debut a new way to explore downtown and create a citywide adventure: Downtown Dayton Winter Bingo! The game will begin on Thursday, January 7, and players can complete a bingo of challenges for the chance to win downtown Dayton prizes throughout the next month.
To play, you’ll complete “challenges” that will have you exploring downtown Dayton dining, arts, culture, shopping and entertainment. The challenges include opportunities to explore in-person following social-distancing guidelines, or tasks that can be completed online from home. If you complete five challenges in a row on the game card to make a “bingo,” you can submit your card into the drawing to win prizes.
Invite your friends to play along with you at our Facebook event page here.

At the end of the Winter Bingo game on Monday, February 15, 2021, five winners will be chosen to receive a Downtown Dayton Prize Pack, which includes more than $100 in gift cards to downtown restaurants, bars, and retailers.
