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.

Derived from the Greek words photōs (light) and graphein (to write), a photograph is created through the controlled action of light on a light-sensitive surface which is then processed to create a permanent, fixed image. From this definition, photographs are literally light-sensitive drawings, although technological improvements have expanded what can qualify as a photograph.
Since its invention in 1839, photography has taken many forms. In this exhibition, discover the range of photographic processes within the Dayton Art Institute’s photography collection.
From early photographic processes to contemporary artworks that expand our notion of the medium, Photography Through Time includes examples of daguerreotype, cyanotype, albumen, gelatin silver, chromogenic, photogravure and inkjet photographs.
