Downtown Eugene is a unique and welcoming neighborhood. The artists, creatives and entrepreneurs that work downtown, lively nightlife, and dense office space create an environment that is an ideal place to experiment, explore, and share. For many, downtown Eugene represents that perfect size community: big enough to have work opportunity, great cultural offerings and good food, but also small enough that you’re likely to run into people you know on any given day.
We encourage you to get involved in your downtown. There are events to attend, from tech meet-ups, monthly First Friday ArtWalks, and a weekly Saturday Market. There are lunchtime running groups, event planning committees, and volunteer opportunities. And any night of the week, you can pull up one of the iconic redwood picnic table benches and meet someone new or get caught up with friends.
