First Friday Downtown Dayton

We’re looking ahead to warmer weather and the 2022 AES Ohio Summer in the City! A trip downtown is the perfect way to celebrate the Kickoff to Summer with the May 6 First Friday. Enjoy live entertainment from 5 – 9 p.m. while you see what your favorite bars, restaurants, and retail shops have to offer.
Summer isn’t the only thing we’re celebrating this month; several brand new businesses are ready to welcome customers! The First Friday fun starts a little bit early with a ribbon-cutting for The Bridal House, at 3 p.m., followed by a ribbon-cutting at Four Acres Photography’s new studio space, The Remedy just one hour later. Gem City Laser is also hosting a pop-up and open house starting at 3 p.m. to celebrate their new space. Don’t forget to visit the Oregon District again on Saturday, May 7, for the fourth annual Derby Day & Running of the Weiner Dogs!
The AES Ohio Summer in the City is in full swing with The Square is Where happening weekdays from 11:30 a.m. – 1 p.m., and a calendar full of downtown fun to explore. Join us on Courthouse Square at 11:30 a.m. on Friday, May 6, for a First Friday pre-party and the official The Square is Where Kickoff Party!
