BECAUSE YOU’RE TIRED OF THE SAME ROUTINE…
BE DOWNTOWN

Find something fun to do with our calendar of downtown events.

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.
