Out on 5th
What is Out on Fifth?
Out on 5th is the closure of Fifth Street in the Oregon District of downtown Dayton to vehicular traffic on weekends.
Closing down Fifth Street from Patterson Boulevard to Wayne Avenue every Friday night through Sunday evening allows the business district to open up the street for guests to shop - dine - and relax in the open air.
- Out on 5th gives restaurants and bars in the district room to expand patio seating into the streets.
- Retail shops can use extra sidewalk space in front of their business for sales.
- Fifth Street is filled with public seating to allow guests room to spread out and enjoy the outdoors.
- Local entertainment will be in the district every weekend to enhance the atmosphere.

HOW: See information below in “parking” on how to plan your visit
All the same cleanliness standards Oregon District businesses use on the inside of their shops and restaurants will be applied to their bonus outdoor spaces -- including the public seating areas. Additionally, hand sanitizer stations will be placed throughout the District for a convenient spritz on the go. We’ve also placed social distancing and mask wearing reminders around the district.
We kindly remind all guest to wear masks whenever entering an indoor establishment, and outdoors when appropriate social distance spacing between yourself, your party and other guests cannot be kept.

Thousands of parking spaces on surface lots, parking garages, or metered side streets (free on weekends) surround the Oregon District.
Oregon District businesses kindly ask you to park in these lots, garages or public street spaces, and not in the residential neighborhood.
