Downtown businesses are creatively adapting to changes necessary for the health and safety of their workers and patrons.
But, business is still OPEN* in downtown Dayton.

2020 DP&L Summer in the City Special Events
Virtual Downtown Housing Tour – May 16
This year, the Downtown Housing Tour went virtual! You can still view it here.
From renovated former industrial spaces to brand-new apartments, lofts and brownstones, downtown Dayton has a wide assortment of living spaces. People choose to live downtown for its rich, authentic places, its concentration of amenities, and its destinations that are easy to access by walking or biking. We hope you’ll enjoy this online tour of some of downtown’s unique living spaces for rent and for purchase, as well as a taste of what it’s like to live in the center of the action, here in downtown Dayton.

Downtown Dayton Summer Bingo – July 3-31
Players will complete “challenges” that will have them exploring downtown Dayton dining, arts, culture, shopping and entertainment. The challenges include opportunities to explore in-person following social-distancing guidelines, or tasks that can be completed online from home. If you complete five challenges in a row on the game card to make a “bingo,” you can submit your card into the drawing to win prizes. Find all the rules and other information here.
