PITTSBURG, KS – The City of Pittsburg’s Downtown Advisory Board (DAB) is inviting the community to celebrate 620 Day with an All-Day City-wide Celebration and a Downtown Block Party. The idea of 620 Day (or June 20) comes from Pittsburg’s area code. The purpose of this annual event is to cultivate pride and celebrate the Pittsburg community. This year, there will be 40+ vendors in attendance.

City-wide Celebration:

All businesses and organizations in the community (not just in downtown) are encouraged to celebrate 620 Day all day long with activities, promotions, discounts, and special offers, or showcase their organization that day in a fun or unique way. Checkout our Facebook page for more details.

To wrap up the city-wide day of celebration, the DAB is hosting a Downtown Block Party at 2nd Street & Broadway from 5:00 pm – 8:00 pm, complete with food, music, and vendors and much more along the street and inside the Pritchett Pavilion.
