Downtown Toledo offers the opportunity to experience world-class fine arts. The 2021-2022 seasons are kicking off now with a variety of performances and exhibitions that appeal to everyone: families, date nights, music connoisseurs and others. Whether you are visiting a Toledo institution that has been entertaining audiences for generations or checking out the latest and diverse artistic expression available to local audiences, we have plenty of entertainment options available for you to enjoy.

Labor Day signals the end of summer, but the weather doesn’t seem to care and we’ve got plenty planned for this weekend! With a wide variety of fun options, we know you’ll have a blast down here with us. We’ve pulled some of our highlight events out for you to browse.


It’s time to shop! The lobby of the HCR building, or the Summit Center, is holding a pop-up retail market. The Toledo Regional Chamber of Commerce has brought in several local, minority owned vendors to have a presence in downtown this week and celebrate the Solheim Cup. Stop by this week from 9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Monday. The building is located at 333 N. Summit St and is accessible by entrance on St. Clair St. Parking can be easily found at the Superior Street Garage, 334 N. Superior Street.

You’ll have no problems getting downtown for all the fun. You can drive and park at any garage and lot in downtown except for the Summit Street Garage (21 N Summit St.) and The Depot Parking Garage (202 N Summit St.). There are over 25 surface parking lots and eight easily accessible parking garages to use for Fan Fest. See all parking formation here. However, if you’d rather ...

The Solheim Cup is a biennial golf tournament contested by teams representing Europe and the United States. While the tournament will be held at Inverness Club, all off-course festivities will be held in downtown. Opening Ceremonies are on Friday, September 3 with the tournament ending Monday, September 6. 

It’s almost Pride weekend in Toledo! There is so much planned between the big event in Promenade and all the fun happening on Adams St, you’ll surely be busy. We’ve put together a schedule of everything going on. Please be advised that Pride is different his year. There will be no parade and the party in Promenade Park is a ticketed event happening in three different sessions. All three sessions are sold out.

Smile! A pop-up selfie museum is coming to downtown. The interactive space, called AList Selfie Experience, has a variety of fun backgrounds, or “selfie stations”, for people to get the perfect picture.

Toledo Jeep Fest is back! The weekend-long festival celebrating the Toledo-made vehicle is promising to be the best one yet. This year’s Jeep Fest is honoring the 80th year of Jeep being made in Toledo. With activities for the whole family to enjoy, this free festival is sure to be a blast.

Events are back and this year is shaping up to be great one! We are so thrilled to feel the excitement and energy in downtown. We've compiled a list of the big highlight events for the the remainder of the year so you can be sure to always be a part of the fun.

As a property owner, business owner, elected official, resident or individual who is passionate about downtown Toledo, you are invited to the Downtown Toledo Improvement District (DTID) open house known as Coffee Connections.
