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.

Gem City Black Business Month engages, entertains, and educates Black business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs and connects them with resources to grow their businesses.
To celebrate, the Downtown Dayton Partnership is issuing the Downtown Black Business Challenge all throughout August. To participate, simply snap a photo of yourself patronizing a Black-owned downtown business, or what you bought during your visit, and text it to 937-668-7227.
Every Friday, four winners will be selected to win a $25 Downtown Dollars digital gift card. Each picture taken at a unique participating business counts as one entry — that’s more than 30 chances to win! One grand-prize winner will be selected at the end of the month to take home $100 in Downtown Dollars.
The event aims to build awareness of downtown’s Black-owned businesses, to encourage participants to engage with them, and to generate new customers and support for Black business.
Visit the Gem City Black Business Month page to learn more about educational programs and ways to support Dayton’s Black-owned businesses.
