Special Events Where it's @

Aurora Downtown hosts an array of amazing events throughout the year. We promote local businesses, artists, and artisans with events like First Fridays. We also host the incredibly popular Food Truck Festival during May’s First Fridays as well as a summer concert series at Millennium Plaza. Phenomenal events including top music acts can be found a step away at RiverEdge Park, and Broadway-quality performances are on stage at the Paramount Theatre. Outdoor events such as Alley Art Festival, Aurora Farmers Market and Aurora Kite Festival are all well worth a visit.
