Spotlight On: Uptown Circleville

                This week’s Community Spotlight is on Uptown Circleville. Formed in 2018, their mission is to “strengthen our city though beautification, promotion, and economic growth.” A few of their projects include bringing DORA to downtown Circleville, setting up decorative flowerpots, and organizing community events. To learn a little more about Uptown Circleville and some of these events going on this summer, we spoke with member Jenny Rhoads. Keep reading to learn more!

Q: Hello! Can you introduce yourself and your role with Uptown Circleville?

My name is Jenny Rhoads. I am a volunteer for Uptown Circleville, and I help with the promotions committee. The promotions committee plans events, market existing events, and promotes business within our Uptown. 

Q: This summer Uptown Circleville is hosting many events, notably First Fridays and the 3 on 3 June 22nd. Do you want to talk about either of those or any other upcoming events?

We are very excited for the 3 on 3 Tournament, as it is our signature event. It brings lots of visitors to the area, and hopefully those visitors can have a chance to see some of Circleville’s great restaurants, shops, and more. 


First Fridays are a great opportunity to bring the whole family uptown. Each Friday has a different theme, hopefully someone will find something that interests them. Our committee has come up with a variety of events that hopefully will bring some excitement back to Uptown on a Friday evening. 

Q: What is your goal in hosting these events and how can people get involved?

These events are to help build our community spirit and bring foot traffic into our brick-and-mortar businesses. Uptown is very much alive and there are a lot of volunteers working to make our city a better place in a variety of ways. 


We are always seeking volunteers for committees or business partners to help fund our endeavors.
