Annual Event — 2021

Saturday, October 2 | 10 am to 4 pm

Be prepared to experience Downtown like never before.  Come tour a unique blend of the old and the new. 

Our Annual Event encourages you to move at your own pace and allow the moment to be your guide.

Explore all the nooks and crannies on your own, with a family member, friend, or even a first date, as you go inside churches, government buildings, residential buildings, artist spaces, theaters, private clubs, hotels, and others.  Stand on stage.  Explore a bank vault.  See an amazing view.
