Category: Downtown Blog

We want you to experience Downtown Flagstaff in the safest way possible, so we made a list of activities you can do this weekend while staying safe and socially distant. Stay, play, distance and mask responsibly!

1. Dinner date on a patio!

Summer evenings in Flagstaff are the perfect time to enjoy dinner on one of the many patios in Downtown Flagstaff! Many of our downtown businesses offer patio seating where you can enjoy food & drinks in a safe environment. See below which businesses downtown offer patio seating:

2. Picnic in the Park

Don't feel like dining in somewhere? Not to worry! A fun Friday evening idea is to grab takeout from your favorite downtown business and have a picnic! There are a couple grassy areas downtown that would be the perfect spot for a picnic. The County Courthouse Lawn and Wheeler Park are a couple examples!

3. Yoga on the Lawn with Holly White

Get your fitness on in Downtown Flagstaff at Yoga on the Lawn with Holly White, "physical distancing style!" Your health and safety is our top priority, so for this year's Yoga on the Lawn we will be practicing social distancing. Lucky for us, the courthouse lawn has plenty of room to successfully social distance and stay 6 feet apart from one another.

This yoga practice will take place every Saturday at 9am, on the County Courthouse lawn (219 E. Cherry Ave) There will be a $5 dollar drop in, and make sure to bring your own yoga mat and/or towel! Whether you are a beginner or experienced yogi, this event is perfect for all levels!


4. At Home with The Orpheum Theater: A Nolan McKelvey Live Stream

Love live music? Then tune in to the The Orpheum Theater's Facebook & YouTube page to watch the live stream of Nolan Mckelvey on Saturday, July 18th at 8pm! This is the perfect thing to do on a Saturday evening. You’re able to enjoy some live music while being in the comfort of your own home.
