You’re invited to join us downtown for dozens of fun, free, and family-friendly events this year. Take a look at our list of events and come have fun with us! We love bringing the community together, and so that we may continue to do so, we require masks to be worn at all indoor venues. As events are subject to change, please check Aurora Downtown’s Facebook page for the latest updates.
