WHAT IS "WE DIG DOWNTOWN"?

Do you dig Downtown Redmond? The ‘We Dig Downtown’ campaign encourages buying local and supporting Redmond businesses during construction. Together, let’s all help minimize the impacts of construction! This fall, we’ll activate the construction zone with themed entertainment each week. Come play on Monday nights September 12 through October 31 from 5-7pm, YOU’LL DIG IT!

Some ideas for how you can DIG DOWNTOWN:

  • Work in Redmond? Invite your co-workers to stay late, avoid the evening commute, and visit Downtown.
  • Hate to drive Downtown? Bike or walk the Redmond Central Connector trail right into Downtown Redmond.
  • Need wheels? Park once in the Public Parking Lot at the corner of Leary Way and Bear Creek Parkway (entrance off BCP) and walk throughout Downtown.
