Go All Out With So Much to Do in Columbus This Weekend!

What are YOU doing this weekend? Any plans? Want to get away? You could pick just about any weekend on the calendar, look over at Columbus, ask what’s going on, and make some incredible plans! Whether it is this weekend, next weekend, or a month from now, Columbus has  a steady array of concerts, plays, and special events, coupled with amazing restaurants, outdoor activities year round, world class museums, and a beautiful Southern setting along the banks of the Chattahoochee River. What are you waiting for?


Here’s an example of just a “regular” weekend in Columbus:

Live Music Outdoors with Ricky Gunn and the Friday Night Concert Series

Friday, September 29th, 7pm - 10pm, 1000 Block of Broadway.


Start your weekend off with live music from Columbus’ own Ricky Gunn. Enjoy the cooler nights that we’re starting to have, grab an amazing dinner in one of our incredible restaurants, and then bring a lawn chair and enjoy live music under the stars.

Catch a World Class Performance of an Award Winning Play/Musical!


We have two amazing live theater performances happening Friday night (as we do most weekends) with the award winning Last Night of Ballyhoo and Dreamgirls. Take your pick and enjoy!

Market Days on Broadway

Saturday, September 30th (and every weekend), 9am - noon, 1000 and 1100 Blocks of Broadway


“Uptown Columbus' Market Days on Broadway takes place every Saturday morning, year-round from 9am until Noon in the 1000 &1100 blocks of Broadway.

The 8th Annual Uptown Beer & Wine Festival.

Saturday, September 30, 2017, from 1pm - 5pm.


This is one of the more popular events on the calendar each year in Columbus. Over 100 craft beers from all over the country are made available along with over 25 wine selections. A DJ playing music, college football available to watch, and food provided by a host of Uptown restaurants. This is a great way to spend a Saturday in the Fall!

Color Me Rad 5K in Uptown, Sunday, October 1, 2017, 9am - 12pm


This is a 5K with a twist as it sends you through color stations leaving you coming out looking quite a bit different from when you started! This is fun for couples and the whole family as you run for fun! At the end, there will be music, food, and more!


Come to Columbus this weekend! Or next! Or the next! There’ll be something great to do when you arrive!
