We're excited for the 3rd season of Red Brick Fridays, an outdoor experience that allows you to support your favorite Oxford businesses while spreading out on the bricks! That's right, during these themed Fridays the city will be "expanding" the sidewalks by closing ALL of High Street (Beech St. to Campus Ave.) so that you can walk right down the middle of the road on our iconic red bricks.
From 6 PM - 10 PM, participating businesses will set up tables on the sidewalks and in parking spots on High Street with select items for sale, from food to retail. We're encouraging each business to play some music from their individual tables so as you walk from one end of High Street to the other, going table to table, you'll enjoy a unique, ever-changing musical experience!
Red Brick Fridays will take place four times this summer:
Recap: The 2022 series kicked off on June 10th with the debut of the Miami University Alumni Association partnering with the City of Oxford, Enjoy Oxford and the Oxford Chamber of Commerce for the Alumni Weekend edition! As added fun for the evening, "Remember When" sandwich board signs were displayed at select locations in the uptown with a social media photo challenge, Oxford Parks & Recreation set up yard games (the Gaga Pit was happening!), several food trucks, and a favorite Alum, Miss Jacque and band, provided live entertainment playing all the favorite covers.
Recap: the Red Light, Green Light Edition on July 1st lead into Oxford's Freedom Festival Celebrations. Bicycle helmet fittings, hippity-hop races down High Street (a first!), and Art in the Park began (supplies provided by City of Oxford).
Next up: Join us Uptown Oxford on August 5th for local retail therapy for all those Dog Days sidewalk sales and more doggie fun:
There will be live music on the pavilion stage throughout the evening between dog events by Oxford Folk Jazz. Walk, shop, eat and support local all in one evening. Remember to brush up on Oxford's Outdoor Refreshment Area.
This evening is brought to you by many partnerships and sponsors: the City of Oxford, Oxford Chamber of Commerce, Animal Care Clinic, Oxford Veterinary Hospital, RDI, and Enjoy Oxford's Red Brick Reunion committee.
On August 26th, celebrate the beginning of the academic year for all students in our community. From 6:00pm to 10:00pm participating businesses will set up tables on the sidewalks and in parking spots on High Street with select items for sale, from food to retail. There will be a variety of fun activities such as a giant Hungry Hungry Hippo game, an inflatable obstacle course, a giant zipline and more! There will also be a musical performance by The Wonderlands Band, food trucks, and sidewalk sales. Come join in on the fun!
