Downtown Marietta


Celebrate one of the season’s most popular candies: Peeps! Participating downtown businesses will feature Peep Sculptures created by local nonprofits and visitors will be able to judge! Visitors will be able to vote for their favorite (or all of them!) by making donations at the site of each sculpture. Sculptures will be on display for a full week and a map will be provided for those wishing to participate in raising money for area nonprofits and enjoying the fun sculptures created!
Is your business or organization interested in participating in the Peep Sculpture competition? Reach out to to get involved!
Each First Friday features Kid Central on the lawn of the Armory thanks to the United Way Alliance of the Mid-Ohio Valley and an arts tent thanks to Artsbridge, providing a focus on various artists and artforms. Make sure to swing by!
Please Note: Guests to downtown are asked to adhere to local and state health guidelines and requirements for distancing, masks, and sanitation as well as requests by individual businesses downtown with occupancy.
