We all missed the social gathering and community building that happens at our community events. This year, we are excited to be able to bring back many of the events that make Miamisburg an event destination. Our motto for events has been: to make sure that events in 2021 are better than 2020, but be ok if the events aren’t like they were in 2019. This means that all our effort has been focused on being able to bring the community together again in a safe and responsible way. We may not be able to have festivals that bring thousands of people at a time into a single venue with multiple attractions, event elements, vendors and entertainment, we do believe we can safely bring groups to enjoy Riverfront Park for an evening concert, a car show, or host a 5K. These will all have some limitations that will mean they are not truly “back to normal”, but we have worked hard to ensure that they will be high-quality events, are safe, and allow us to get together again.
Nothing feels like summer more than car shows. Check out the latest upgrades, see how a classic has been restored, or use this as an excuse to get out of the house. We host multiple car shows each summer and 2021 will be no different. As with other events, the number of cars may be limited or spaced to ensure distancing is met, but that won’t stop you from being able to peer under the hood of these beauties. Check out PlayMiamisburg.com for upcoming car show details.
