Warm weather and longer days make March the perfect time to find an adventure in Columbus. So grab a pen and get ready to mark your calendars—here are our dealership’s five favorite Columbus, OH events that will help you kick those wintery blues to the curb.
1. Columbus Auto Show (March 16th – 17th)
This auto show is one of our Toyota dealership’s favorite annual events. Each year, the latest vehicles and automotive technology roll through the Columbus Convention Center, giving us a glimpse into the future. Visitors can also shop at Accessory Avenue, a new addition to the show, and purchase customized or authentic manufacturer accessories straight from a local Columbus dealership.
On top of some of the world’s newest models and tech, this auto show also features a Toyota Drive Center. Stop by the booth to sit in the driver’s seat of the newest Toyota vehicles, including the Camry, Prius, RAV4, and more.
If you’ve got kids, they’ll enjoy interacting with zoo animals, getting their faces painted, and watching balloon art. Ah, to be a kid.
Visit their website for more details or to buy tickets to this weekend event.
2. March Madness (March 14th – 19th)
Basketball fans rejoice! March 14th kicks off this year’s NCAA tourney in Dayton, OH. If you’d like to make a day trip to watch the First Four, grab your tickets here.
Of course, you don’t have to travel outside of Dublin or Columbus to enjoy March Madness. Beginning on Thursday, March 16th, you can watch your brackets get busted from just about any sports bar in the area. “Eat” an extended lunch at your favorite pub, like King Avenue 5, or catch all the buzzer beaters from a booth at the famous BWW near Westerville. The games go through the weekend, so prepare yourself for lots of action.
3. Columbus Kids Winter Fun Festival (March 11th – 12th)
Hosted at the Ohio Expo Center, the Columbus Kids Winter Fun Festival is packed with activities for kids big and small. Animal lovers should be sure to check out the petting zoo, pony rides, horse exhibit, and the “MUTTVILLE COMEDY DOG ACT.” General lovers of fun will have a blast inside the bounce house, on the obstacle courses, singing karaoke, and much more. Don’t miss out on the first warmer-weather event here in Columbus. Check out the festival’s website for more show information.
4. Bon Jovi Concert (March 18th)
It’s your life, so we won’t tell you what to do, but if you’re a fan of classic ‘80s tunes, you should hop on the train to Bon Jovi-land when his tour swings through Columbus. Sing along to new and old hits like “Livin’ on a Prayer” or “You Give Love a Bad Name,” and imagine what life would be like if you had his perfectly coiffed hairdo. Act quick and grab your tickets to this Columbus Bon Jovi concert.
