No matter the season, the reason for special events in Downtown Bloomington remains the same: to get people involved. Downtown Bloomington is the heart of the community – still that Main Street where people go when they want to spend time with friends and family.
From art galleries to performing arts, Downtown has entertainment for everyone.
