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.

Make the museum part of your homeschool studies! In this program, students build a foundation for visual arts by developing their observation and critical thinking skills through discussions of artwork in the museum. This program explores art through a variety of interdisciplinary activities. The program includes a workshop to engage the children with the museum’s collection galleries and special exhibitions. We will divide into two age groups for a 30-minute spotlight gallery experience and an art-making experience. All materials are provided.
