Rally BG on Main event returns Aug. 27 in downtown Bowling Green

BOWLING GREEN, Ohio – The City of Bowling Green and Bowling Green State University invite you to a fun event for people of all ages to gather, explore downtown BG, welcome the return of BGSU students, eat and be entertained. The 2nd annual Rally BG on Main will take place on Saturday, Aug. 27, from noon – 9 p.m. in historic downtown Bowling Green.

Main Street will be closed to vehicular traffic for the duration of the event, allowing for a day packed full of fun activities in the heart of Bowling Green. Thrill seekers will have an opportunity to zip line down Main or compete in the Ninja Warrior Course. The City of Bowling Green Parks and Recreation Department will host a 3-on-3 tournament on Main Street. Attendees will also have an opportunity to meet Freddie and Frieda Falcon, make a street sign, and support local shops and restaurants. Want to stay outside? Grab a bite to eat at one of the food trucks or order a DORA drink to go.

Throughout the day, a DJ will be playing music, the Bowling Green High School and BGSU Marching Band will perform, and cheer and dance groups will be performing as we rally together as one community. Families will not want to miss a chance to get up close to a fire truck and police car, participate in sporting activities with BGSU Athletics, or have some fun with the Wood County Library.

“I’m thrilled that the Rally BG event is returning for its second year! We could not have imagined the tremendous response from the community during last year’s inaugural event,” Bowling Green Mayor Mike Aspacher said. “This event provides an opportunity for all of our community members to join together in a relaxed and fun environment, fostering true community spirit, inclusion, and pride!”

This event is being sponsored by the City and BGSU. With the exception of food and drink, this event is free of charge.
