Find something fun to do with our calendar of downtown events.
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.

Annually, the Dayton Dragons host one of the biggest timed, 5K races in the Miami Valley with over 2,000 participants. So, we’re excited to share the great news that “THE RACE THAT PAYS YOU” is back with options to participate in-person and virtual (whatever you are most comfortable with for 2022) . With $75 worth of swag included with your entry…you don’t want to miss out on this awesome event!
Due to the continued impact of COVID-19, the Dragons 5K will continue offering a virtual option for those that prefer that method for 2022. What this means is that you can register for the race, then run, walk, or hike your own Dragons 5K in your neighborhood, on a treadmill or at a local park, and then simply input your time online by July 16, 2022. You will still receive your swag bag of items including the 5K t-shirt, medal, and Dragons hat (we will email all participants with a link to select Dragons tickets for the 2022 season after the race date of July 16, 2022).
