Since 2008, UpDayton has been a powerhouse of ideas and people who understand Dayton’s greatest potential. The organization has been the brains and hard work behind several of Dayton’s most engaging community projects and accomplishments over the past decade, including Dayton Inspires, Longest Table Dayton and the mural pedestrian bridge that connects the Oregon District and South Park neighborhoods.

"Throughout the summer we'll host special events for program participants and their friends," according to UpDayton's website. "Our featured events include a Dayton Dynamo soccer game, a Cool Films series with the Victoria Theatre Association and a pre-show event beforehand, kayaking, a hackathon, Art in the City, a Dayton Dragons baseball game, Mike's Bike Park, the Gem City Roller Girls, a Game Night at D20 and more!"
