As Downtown Cleveland comes alive for the 2021 NFL Draft, local and visiting football fans are invited to come together safely and responsibly to experience the excitement of the festivities from April 29 to May 1 at three Rock the Clock End Zone activation sites.
Presented by Downtown Cleveland Alliance (DCA), Destination Cleveland and Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, the protocol-compliant viewing and dining areas are designed to create safe, engaging and memorable atmospheres for residents and visitors, while helping to drive business to downtown restaurants and retailers. Rock the Clock End Zone locations will be in Playhouse Square at US Bank Plaza, on Old River Road in Flats East Bank and on Mall C.
Face coverings (when not seated or actively consuming food and beverage), social distancing and other mandated safety protocols via local health officials and the CDC will be enforced within the End Zone space for the safety of everyone in attendance.
Guest capacities will be enforced for the health and safety of all attendees. Admission will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis; reservations or tickets are not required.
Thursday, April 29 and Friday, April 30 from 3 p.m. – 10 p.m.
The activation will feature extended outdoor seating for surrounding restaurant takeout (no beverages), live music from DJs, and broadcasts of the NFL Draft.
Thursday and Friday from 12 p.m. – 10 p.m. and Saturday, May 1 from 12 p.m. - 7 p.m.
Overlooking the lakefront and the NFL Draft Experience, this activation provides a more open area with picnic space for eating local takeout (no beverages), food trucks and other concessions, live music from DJs, broadcasts of the NFL Draft, and a great spot to watch the fireworks show after every night of the Draft!
