Good Morning Oberlin is a business and community meeting that offers attendees the opportunity to network, learn, and share information about their businesses, projects, events, etc. OBP hosts this meeting at 9 a.m. on the second Thursday of each month. There is usually a primary presentation and one or two short presentations - followed by Q&A and opportunity to share.

Everyone needs to relax and laugh one in a while – especially if it is for a good cause. Comedy Night helps to raise funds to support the work OBP | Positively Oberlin! does to advance and promote the sustainable growth and prosperity of the Oberlin community.

A day of fun & creativity for EVERYONE! Local and regional artists create imaginative chalk drawings throughout downtown Oberlin. Volunteers are on hand to provide free chalk and people of all ages can add their own artwork to the sidewalk galleries. If you can’t engage your inner artist in creating chalk art, come downtown to view art in action. Take a leisurely stroll (be sure to take photos), enjoy food from one of our local restaurants and be amazed by what people can create from a few sticks of chalk and a sidewalk square.
