Buckeye Game Day 2020 Update
In June 2020, OSUDC voted to not host in-person Game Day events this year.
While OSUDC is not hosting official game watch parties this season, all of our OSUDC Partner Bars will be featuring the Buckeyes games all season starting October 24 with sound on. If you are in the neighborhood, please consider supporting these local businesses by ordering carry-out or delivery. Don’t miss the great special offers for Buckeye fans! You can find detailed information on all six of our partner bars throughout the DC, Maryland, and Virginia area on our Buckeye Game Day page.
Should Ohio State fans choose to attend one of our bars in person to watch Buckeye football, please note the COVID protocols in place at our respective bars, listed on our Buckeye Game Day page.
