Introducing “Distinctly Downtown”

The staff members at Downtown Akron Partnership come into contact with a wide variety of people when we are out and about in the community visiting businesses, participating in community events, making connections between stakeholders, and promoting Downtown Akron. We continually hear from residents, employees, students and visitors who are inspired by the positive energy in Downtown and the revitalization that has happened here in the last several years. We love telling the story of Downtown and talking about all of the businesses, organizations and people that make Downtown so welcoming and vibrant.

DAP’s new “Distinctly Downtown” feature is a way for you to find out about all of the wonderful things going on in Downtown Akron. Each week we’ll shine a spotlight on the places and faces that make Downtown Akron unique!

We hope to see you soon in Downtown Akron!
