First Friday Downtown Dayton


April 2 First Friday welcomes guests for art, shopping and dining experiences

Get out and explore in downtown Dayton for First Friday with the shopping, dining and drinks, and creative local arts scene at the independent, small businesses of downtown Dayton. Save the date for April’s First Friday on Friday, April 2, beginning at 5 p.m. Details are listed below and can be found on the First Friday Facebook page event.

As a reminder to the community: The State of Ohio has lifted the curfew on local businesses, but the health and safety of staff and patrons continues to be the top priority for downtown business owners, managers and workers. With the current state of the virus in our community, businesses continue to follow socially-distanced protocols and expand their “from afar” options that include delivery and takeout. 

We remind guests of the mandatory mask order in place across Dayton and the state. Masks must be worn indoors, and outdoors when the suggested 6 feet of social distancing cannot be maintained. Businesses also have capacity limits on the number of guests allowed indoors at one time.

For an entire listing of ways you can support the local, small businesses that make up the heart of downtown Dayton, including downtown Dayton dining options -- with expanded patio and indoor social-distanced seating -- retail hours and operations, and things to do in downtown Dayton, visit our website.
