Vibrant Downtown Eugene

Improving Eugene's Downtown and Urban Parks

Exciting changes are happening downtown. We’ve seen new businesses opening, buildings filled with active uses, more people living downtown and more jobs — more than $250 million in public and private investments in our downtown. We are continuing to build on those successes with improvements to downtown infrastructure, public safety, social services and events. This summer will be a great time to visit downtown!

This summer, downtown is chock full of opportunities for fun and entertainment! Go to the Downtown Events calendar for the full list of city events.

The Park Blocks, Broadway Plaza (Kesey Square), and the Plazas at the Library and Hult Center are filled all summer long with music, dance and artistic performance with a new HiFi Street Performance Series, the NOW! Performing Arts Series, Fridays at the Park Blocks and pARTy on the Plaza.

Plus, check out Movies in the Park Blocks every Thursday night in August and chess tournaments in Broadway Plaza (Kesey Square) during Slow Motion Sundays. To keep you satisfied during all the great entertainment, you’ll want to visit the food trucks in the Park Blocks and Broadway Plaza.
