Since I just moved to Columbus a few months ago, you could say sometimes I am a bit 'out of the loop' about 'norm' things here in Cbus!
I was hyped to find out that June 14th AKA 6/14 AKA 614 DAY is a holiday here in Columbus! Last year, was the first year that the Columbus City Council recognized '614 Day' as an OFFICIAL holiday in the city. Hell ya!
First thing I thought was-- so what does '614 Day' mean!? I dug a bit and UM YES, count me in! A day to celebrate all our capital has to offer! But the main theme is LOCAL--Drink Local, Shop Local, Buy Local, Celebrate Local -- a day to highlight all the city has to offer and show our pride for this amazing community.
SO, because #2020, 614 Day is a bit different this year BUT i'd say more powerful than ever!
614 Day is an opportunity to celebrate our community's strength and support local businesses. With the year we have had, it's important to build our community back and come out stronger than ever.
• TWO STUDIOS LIVE STREAM: Throughout the day, live streaming between two local studios will take place featuring incredible 614-inspired content from local influencers, musicians and artists via Facebook Live.
• 614 MARKETPLACE: Imagine a live expo tradeshow gone digital – this is it. Vendors from across the region will be able to exhibit virtually at tables and in lounges within this online software platform. Lovers of all things 614 will be invited to attend, visit, and interact with vendors live.
• LIVE!: Live events are the heart and soul of this city we know and love. Since we are unable to host an in-person event like in a normal year, a drive-in movie and drive-through food & brew will take place.
