Things To Do in Downtown Columbus
You’ll find cultural institutions like the incredible Columbus Museum of Art, the free galleries of the Columbus College of Art & Design, the best-in-the-nation Columbus Metropolitan Library and one-of-a-kind Topiary Park, a recreation of Seurat’s A Sunday Afternoon on the Isle of Grande Jatte in shrubbery.
The Columbus Commons park hosts concerts, free exercise classes, a cute carousel and special events like an every-Thursday food truck rally during the warmer months. At the southern end of the breathtaking Scioto Mile, Bicentennial Park hosts summer concerts and is home to a huge set of popular play fountains.
Monthly events like Moonlight Market on lively Gay Street make for special surprises, while festivals fill the streets throughout the summer months.
