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.

Each summer, the Downtown Dayton Partnership and Montgomery County present The Square Is Where, featuring free live entertainment and much more, weekdays on downtown’s Courthouse Square.
A variety of performers take the stage around the noontime lunch hour on most weekdays during the summer months (May through September). Entertainment includes bands, dancers, live trivia, arts groups, acoustic musicians and more.
Food vendors also set up on Courthouse Square each weekday, allowing downtown workers and others to grab lunch from a vendor or a downtown restaurant and take in the live entertainment while enjoying the outdoors downtown.
Other features of the program include patio umbrella and bistro-style tables, cornhole, mini-golf, giant chess and checkers, and other games and activities. Fun tournaments and other events also are planned to help you enjoy taking a break from the office, meeting up with friends and coworkers, and enjoying the sunshine during lunch!
