Downtown Bay City

Welcome to Downtown, soon to become your favorite place to visit, work and live. We offer festivals throughout the year, celebrating annual and special events. We have plenty of sites to see, one-of-a-kind shops and places to eat.

Located on the water you can stroll along the Riverwalk and enjoy the parks or visit one of our art galleries. At night the downtown comes alive with concerts, movies, and other special events.

Unfortunately, due to the impending rain storm tomorrow we have made the decision to cancel the July 10th Young People's Summer Series with the Bay County Library System & Bay City Public Schools 🌧 We will see you back on July 17th for CamFactor Music!

A decision for the ...Wednesdays in the Park concert HAS NOT been made yet. *If* the concert is moved indoors, it will be moved to Central High School Auditorium. If and when an announcement is made, it will be on the Downtown Bay City social media pages first.
