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.

An event every day that begins at 12:00 am, repeating until Thursday, March 31, 2022
Each year, Dayton Live partners with Shango: Center for the Study of African American Art and Culture, and Willis “Bing” Davis, exhibit curator and director of EbonNia Gallery, to display an exhibit of art by local African American artists inside the Schuster Center.
This year’s exhibit, at the Schuster Center January 26-March 31, 2022, is 2022 Dayton Skyscrapers featuring the work of African American visual artists from the Miami Valley. The Dayton Skyscrapers art project is not a celebration of Dayton’s tall buildings or our skyline. Dayton Skyscrapers is a metaphor for those local and regional African Americans who stand tall in our minds and hearts for what they have achieved in their field and their contributions to the quality of life of Dayton and the Miami Valley Region. The Visual Voices 2022 team of Dayton and Miami Valley African American visual artists have selected a core of high-achieving African Americans as Dayton Skyscrapers.
