  • Over the next one to five years, this series of short- and intermediate-term strategies will accelerate the evolution of Downtown Cleveland from a 9-to-5 central business district into a diverse, vibrant, and accessible mixed-use, 18-hour, 15-minute neighborhood.  
  • We have a shared vision of the future with an accelerated focus on the economy, environment, and experience.  

Freedom Fest

  • Residents and visitors alike are invited to come together for this free, family-friendly event featuring live music, vendors, food trucks, entertainment, and more.  

New Brand/Name Launched 

  • Our brand is designed to reflect the changes at our organization and who we are. We are Downtown Cleveland.
