OPEN* DOWNTOWN – Retail & Services
Downtown’s collection of great independent businesses have adapted with the times to continue serving you!
Our small businesses — and the thousands of workers who run them behind the scenes each day — depend on all of us. They have been hit hard by COVID-19 precautionary measures and limitations and need our help.
Now, more than ever, it’s a great time to support local businesses and Be Downtown.
See below for a list of downtown retail and service businesses that remain open in some way (in-person, online, pickup, etc.)
**Things are changing rapidly, and as such, the information presented here is subject to change. The list below represents our best understanding of the services downtown businesses currently are offering, and we will make every effort to keep up with changes, but we recommend confirming with each business directly.
If you own or operate a downtown business, please contact us with any changes to offerings or any incorrect information you see here. You can also visit our page of resources for businesses and employees for help getting through this crisis.

Five Rivers MetroParks’ 2nd Street Market will reopen outdoors on a much smaller scale, so the public can buy fresh produce, meat and dairy from local farmers. The Market is located at 600 E. Second St. in downtown Dayton.
Until further notice, the Market will be open only on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine.
The first 30 minutes (9 to 9:30 AM) will be reserved for vulnerable populations only (those ages 65+ and those with compromised immune systems). MetroParks appreciates the patience and understanding of other Market shoppers.
Shoppers will need to plan ahead, as a number of precautions will be in place to slow the spread of COVID-19.
The outdoor-only Market can accommodate a limited number of vendors. Most vendors will be set up outdoors on the south side of the Market building. One dairy and one meat vendor will be set up outdoors on the northwest side of the building. The Market’s prepared food and artisan vendors have not yet reopened.
All shoppers must enter at the east end of the Market’s south parking lot and exit at the west end. A limited number of people will be allowed inside the shopping area at a time, so visitors may have to wait in line — while maintaining social distancing and wearing face coverings — before they can shop. Signage and volunteers will help guide shoppers.
The limited hours and other changes have been made to protect the health and safety of Market shoppers, vendors, staff and volunteers during the COVID-19 public health emergency.
Shoppers are asked to review an online Shoppers’ Oath before visiting the Market, which asks them to do such things as stay home if they’re sick or have been in contact with someone who’s sick. Other precautions and changes mean visitors should expect a shopping experience that’s very different from that of previous summers at the Market:
- Social distancing of at least six feet must be maintained at all times.
- Shoppers are asked to purchase their items and move along so that others may do the same, as well as to prepare a list to expedite shopping.
- Shoppers are asked to designate one person per household to visit the Market.
- Shoppers will not be allowed to touch products, but instead must ask vendors for what they’d like to buy.
- Shoppers cannot use their own bags.
- Dogs are not permitted other than service animals.
- Restrooms and water fountains are not available, and shoppers will not have access to the interior of the Market building.
In addition, all shoppers will be required to wear face coverings that cover their mouth and nose to protect the health and safety of the Market’s staff, vendors and volunteers, as well as their own health and safety. A vendor will be located at the entrance selling face coverings. Exceptions will be made only for those who cannot wear a face covering due to health conditions.
Those who would like to shop from local farmers but would prefer to do so online can access links to Market vendors’ websites and social media pages at metroparks.org/localfood.
Even with the necessary precautions, Five Rivers MetroParks felt it was important to reopen the Market in the largest capacity possible at this time to give the community access to fresh, local food — especially as more people are protecting their health in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“While MetroParks is asking visitors to change how they shop, what hasn’t changed is the ever-growing need to provide equitable access to fresh, local produce,” 2nd Street Market Manager Lynda Suda said. “The Market is one of only a few locations where people can shop for fresh food in the downtown area. With areas identified as food deserts just a short distance away, we have to take food equity and accessibility very seriously.”
Many 2nd Street Market vendors offer EBT/SNAP benefits and Produce Perks matching benefits — which still will be available to customers. Tokens are available from Homefull’s EBT/SNAP Exchange, temporarily located near the entrance of the outdoor market, to shop at participating Market vendors. These benefits are offered thanks to a partnership between Five Rivers MetroParks and Homefull.
The reopening also is important because 2nd Street Market helps Five Rivers MetroParks meet its conservation mission and serve as the region’s conservation leader by providing the community with access to local food, which is less taxing on the environment and often healthier.
In early May, Five Rivers MetroParks and Homefull were recognized with an Outstanding Support Organization award from the National Association of County Park and Recreation Professionals for their partnership allowing more equitable access to fresh food. The Ohio Parks and Recreation Association also awarded the partnership an Award of Excellence in early 2020.
2nd Street Market shoppers and Five Rivers MetroParks visitors should always follow the CDC’s recommendations, particularly for social distancing and wearing face coverings, while spending time outdoors. For the most current information on MetroParks’ COVID-19 response and related closures, visit metroparks.org/covid-19 and follow Five Rivers MetroParks on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Nari Ward: We the People
September 11–November 30, 2020
This fall, The Contemporary Dayton is pleased to present Nari Ward’s work, We The People. With this nearly 60-foot-wide wall installation, which consists of thousands of shoelaces that hang fringe-like from the gallery wall, Ward recreates the words that start the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution, replicating the font and style of the Constitution’s main scribe, Timothy Matlack. In pairing the most quotidian of materials with one of our country’s most lofty and enduring ideas, Ward seeks to explore how this living document remains vital as Americans prepare to participate in one of the most crucial elections of our lifetime.
Additionally, The Co will collaborate with the League of Women Voters in the Greater Dayton Area, by turning the gallery into a voter registration center and delivering every newly registered voter’s documents to the Montgomery County Board of Elections on a daily basis. Registration will include the ability to receive mail-in ballots.
The work itself will be scaled so large that it can be experienced from the street outside The Co as well as in its full glory from inside the gallery. Furthermore, the work will remain lit every night during the exhibition, a beacon to the deep and enduring ideas that it signifies. The exhibition will be accompanied by a full-color publication with an interview with the artist and an explanation of the installation process. During the exhibition, The Co’s website will feature a virtual showroom which will contain images, essays, interviews, and videos that further explore Nari Ward’s work and ideas.
For nearly 30 years of an internationally recognized career, Nari Ward’s practice has centered on the accumulation of overwhelming amounts of modest, everyday items, repurposing them in consistently astonishing ways. His methods emanate from a variety of folk traditions from Jamaica, his birthplace, that are centered on the recycling of non-traditional art materials as well as found materials from Harlem, where he has lived and worked for the past 25 years. More importantly though, Ward has drawn many of his ideas from research into specific histories and places, often revisiting the ideas and struggles of immigration and displacement as an American tradition. In this endeavor, Ward’s work makes viewers aware of commonalities that link geographically and culturally disparate communities providing insight into the strains between tradition and transformation.
Ward’s career has seen exhibitions at The Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston, MA, The Barnes Foundation, Philadelphia, PA, MASS MoCA, North Adams, MA, The Walker Arts Center, Minneapolis, MN, and The Perez Art Museum, Miami, FL. His career retrospective opened at The New Museum, NY in February 2019 and has since traveled to The Contemporary Arts Center, Houston, TX, and The Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver, CO.
The Dayton Art Institute reopened in July with limited hours of 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays, noon-5 p.m. on Sundays.
New policies and safety measures have been put in place to protect staff and guests, as recommended by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Ohio Department of Health. These include:
Physical distancing measures to ensure guests remain six feet from others not in their group
All staff and guests will be required to wear face coverings while inside the museum
Enhanced cleaning procedures in place throughout the museum
Protective shields installed at the museum’s Guest Services Desk

Stages may still be dark at theatres around the country, but the Dayton Art Institute (DAI) will bring the spirit of the performing arts to life with its latest Special Exhibition.
Picasso to Hockney: Modern Art on Stage reveals what happened when prominent painters and sculptors turned their attention to the stage and collaborated with writers, musicians and dancers. The exhibition opens October 17 and will be on view at the DAI through January 17, 2021. Current museum hours are Fridays and Saturdays, 11 a.m. – 5 p.m., and Sundays, noon – 5 p.m. The exhibition
Picasso to Hockney contains works by some of the most celebrated artists of the 20th century, including Pablo Picasso, David Hockney, Henri Matisse, Fernand Léger, Natalia Gontcharova, Joan Miró, Louise Nevelson, Robert Indiana, Jim Dine and many others. It pulls back the curtain on a lesser known but equally inspiring aspect of these artists’ creative expressions—their collaborations as designers of sets, costumes, lighting, scenery and, in some instances, complete performances. These artists contributed stunning designs to world-renowned plays, operas and ballets, such as Pulcinella, La Création du Monde (The Creation of the World), King Arthur and The Mother of Us All.
“It is a wonderful opportunity to enjoy stunning works, which were made for the stage by major artists who are known primarily for their paintings and sculpture,” said Dr. Jerry N. Smith, the DAI’s Chief Curator and Director of Education. “The art on display, since it was created for the theater, offers a novel look at major art movements of the 20th century. For example, to see a breathtaking costume created by Henri Matisse that was once worn by an actor on stage, or a series of painted designs by Jim Dine for stage sets, helps us appreciate the artists and their creativity in new ways.”
Organized by the McNay Art Museum in San Antonio, Texas, Picasso to Hockney features 115 objects of set and costume design, and it offers fresh insights into artists and movements, from Cubism and Constructivism to Surrealism and Pop Art. The exhibition presents a rare opportunity to experience more than 100 years of original performance designs by renowned visual artists who took their creativity to the stage. Spectacular costumes from the theater, such as dresses by Lesley Dill, and several costumes by Robert Indiana, are also included in the exhibition. Picasso to Hockney invites visitors to explore how these visual artists challenged conventional theatre practices and often redefined their own work in the process.
Drawn from the McNay Art Museum’s Tobin Collection of Theatre Arts, Picasso to Hockney aligns with Robert L. B. Tobin’s belief that, “designs come to life only when they are used.” The late San Antonio art collector and performance advocate ensured his collection would be accessible to the public. Tobin hoped this collection would serve to educate and inspire future generations of young theatre makers.
“Dayton is known for its vibrant arts community, so it’s only fitting to present this exciting combination of visual and performing arts from the Tobin Collection at the Dayton Art Institute,” said DAI Director & CEO Michael R. Roediger. “Picasso to Hockney shines an inspiring light on the arts, as well as the artists who bring the arts to life. Your Dayton Art Institute is open and ready to safely welcome you to the museum. I hope you’ll take the opportunity to view this amazing exhibition from our friends at the McNay Art Museum and support the DAI.”
Several online programs and at-home activities will be offered in conjunction with Picasso to Hockney, including:
DAI Book Club: Language of Art
Saturday, Oct. 24 & Thursday, Nov. 5, 12–1 p.m. each day

Brethen, Norma Landis & Rick Hoffman, Perfection Group and PNC, with ADDITIONAL SUPPORT from Jessup Wealth Management. SUPPORTING MEDIA SPONSOR is ThinkTV.

Times of crisis can act as a stimulus for the creative spirit. COVID-19 is no exception.
Spending more time in his home office, Code for Dayton co-Captain Dave Best really began to notice his bare walls. Our #DaytonStrong resilience has been demonstrated by our giving to the COVID-19 fund at The Dayton Foundation to our support for our essential workers, from healthcare to those working in grocery and drug stores to those delivering our mail and packages. Many Daytonians have made an extra effort to support our local restaurants by ordering carry-out or delivery, or purchasing growlers of locally-brewed craft beer. Musicians, on their own or through venues like The Old Yellow Cab, have set up virtual concerts where the audience can donate online.
After staring at the walls, the obvious question was “What about our visual artists”? Aren’t they essential to helping bring beauty and meaning to our lives? How can the community help support them at a time when the studios, galleries, coffee shops and restaurants where they typically show their work are closed?
In Dave’s reaching out to and partnering with The Collaboratory’s Arts Collaboratory initiative, we have co-created Essential Artists Dayton to offer a FREE online platform for Dayton visual artists to set up an online storefront. And by FREE, we mean 100% of sales, less any processing charges, goes to the artists.
Please consider setting up an account today and start to browse our galleries. We have asked artists to feature work that is priced to be accessible. Note that some artists will have links to their website or online gallery where you can view a larger body of work.
All art purchased through Essential Artists Dayton will be available for pick-up at The Collaboratory, Monday - Friday from 10 AM to 4 PM or by appointment. The exchange will be made while practicing appropriate social distancing. The Collaboratory is located at 114 West First Street, Suite B, in Talbott Tower.

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the movies! THE NEON's Board has met and the following guidelines are the initial steps we have taken for reopening. The safety and health of our staff and customers is paramount. We are now open! TO ENSURE THAT NEON STAFF & GUESTS STAY HEALTHY: Masks are required for all staff and guests except when eating in an auditorium; Our entrance to the building has moved to our patio doors - this will streamline transactions - separating ticketing from food purchases. Additional time between screenings will also minimize lobby traffic; Commonly touched surfaces will be sanitized every 30 minutes; Floor markers will assist with social distancing, and hand sanitizers are located throughout the lobby; Please arrive before the scheduled showtime; Seating will begin approximately 40 minutes before each show; In the auditoriums, every other row will be unavailable; Groups may sit together, but 3 seats will be required between parties in each row; We have increased the time between screenings to allow us sufficient time to sanitize the auditoriums; For additional assurance, seat wipes will also be available for customer use. Please stay home if you have any of the following symptoms: cough, shortness of breath, fever, chills, sore throat or new loss of taste/smell.
