In Columbus, it's easy to find an event to match your interests whether it's a concert that's here, a sporting event or a local festival.

Columbus' music scene is wowing national audiences with Made in CBUS acts like Twenty One Pilots, Lydia Loveless, and Saintseneca. You can find local musicians playing live any day of the week at clubs across the city like Notes, Little Rock, Brothers Drake Meadery, Ace of Cups, and the Big Room Bar. National acts take the stage at venues like the NewportExpress Live!, the Schottenstein Center, and Nationwide Arena

Home to several major sporting teams, including the NHL’s Columbus Blue Jackets, MLS’s Columbus Crew SC, Triple-A affiliate of the Cleveland Indians, the Columbus Clippers, or an Ohio State University sporting event, you can catch a game no matter what the season!  

Local professional theater, national acts, comedy, dramatic works, Broadway shows, dance and more can all be found at the various theaters and stages throughout Columbus at any time of the year.

During the summer and fall, there’s a huge festival happening in Columbus almost every weekend! Check our annual festivals and events to make sure you don’t miss out on something you’d love!
