THE SQUARE IS WHERE
SUMMER WEEKDAYS ON COURTHOUSE SQUARE
BECAUSE LUNCHTIME SHOULD BE FUN…
Enjoy free noontime entertainment in the heart of downtown
Each summer, the Downtown Dayton Partnership and Montgomery County present The Square Is Where, featuring free live entertainment and much more, Tuesdays-Fridays on downtown’s Courthouse Square.
Bring your friends and coworkers for a midday break outside!
A variety of performers take the stage around the noontime lunch hour on most weekdays (Tuesdays-Fridays) 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 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!

Let’s do Lunch!
Looking for somewhere to grab food to bring to Courthouse Square? We’ve put together a handy “Where to Eat & Drink” list that shows everything on a map that’s easy to read on your phone.
Support our independent, local businesses when they need you the most! Pick a different place to get lunch to go each time you visit the square, and see how many you can check off.
Another great way to find a place to grab lunch is by using Downtown Dayton’s “Lunch-o-Matic.”
This fun device will randomly select a downtown lunch spot for you with each pull of the lever. Watch the options spin as you anxiously await your culinary fate and see what Lunch-o-Matic has chosen for you!
Don’t like the results? Spin it again! Lunch-o-Matic makes the tough decision about where to pick up lunch today easy and fun. You may even discover a new favorite spot.
The 2023 season of The Square Is Where is now finished.
Thanks for joining us for another great year of noontime programming.
We’ll see you on the Square in May of 2024!
