On Saturday, August 26, the Oregon District Business Association is putting on its second annual District Day event. The free, family-friendly event will begin at 1:00 pm and end at 6:00 pm. Start (or finish) your adventure at the Bier Garden at Fifth and Pine streets and explore the businesses of the Oregon District.
District Day is a chance for people to enjoy the vibrancy of the Historic Oregon District by sampling food from participating restaurants, browsing through retailer’s sidewalk sales, and enjoying live music from local bands and DJs, sponsored by WYSO. There is no admission to participate in activities, but bring cash for the bier garden or if you’d like to patronize one of the District businesses! (Most merchants and restaurants accept major credit cards.)
This year, the event will feature:
- a “Bier Garden” set up with a beer truck serving local beer
- three live funk bands
- dance performances
- WYSO’s Basim Blunt as emcee
- face painting for children, courtesy of Gem City Tattoo Club
- inflatable games
- cornhole boards and other giant games
It’s Saturday, so on-street parking at metered spaces is free! Look for the brightly colored Oregon District parking signs for more free on-street parking, or use the Transportation Center Garage or paid lots in the District for convenient, affordable options.
