Downtown Live


Free Music. Food Trucks. Spirits.

Thursdays in July, 5:30-10:30pm

Thursdays are the new Friday: Downtown Live is a chance to decompress from the work week and check out the local music scene. The world-class Columbus Bicentennial Pavilion at Columbus Commons plays host to free concerts that fire-up at 5:30pm.  You can warm-up for the night (or cool-off) at the house bar starting at 5pm. Thanks to the local improv group, Hashtag Comedy, for serving as our MC for this series.
