Local Events in Historic Downtown Danville
Throughout the year, the city of Danville hosts several fun community events. Danville is a family-friendly, dog-friendly town with first rate dining and shopping. We love the opportunity to spend time with the people of this community and enjoy participating in each event. Events include the following:
The Wine and Chocolate Stroll
Sip on local and award winning wines and enjoy chocolates in the evening. Listen to jazz music and stroll into stores lining downtown Danville.
Meet with other owners and give your dog a fun-filled afternoon. Walk the Iron Horse trail and don’t miss the free treats. Tons of fun for you and your four-legged friend(s).
