Celebrate in a Big Way…
Get ready to have a blast in Your Downtown
Downtown Dayton is the site for many large-scale events throughout the year, three of which the Downtown Dayton Partnership coordinates. As more information on festivals and events becomes available, you'll find it all here. There’s nothing like celebrating in style in the center city!
Coming up next...
The annual AleFest Dayton is a craft beer festival showcasing more than 400 beers from all over the world. This year's festival will be held at downtown's Dave Hall Plaza. Food will be available from local food trucks, and entertainment will be provided by Seventh Street. General admission tickets ($40 in advance, $50 at the door) include 20 samples of craft beer, a commemorative tasting glass, sampling guide, live entertainment, & raffle entry. No one under 21 will be admitted.
District Day is a chance to enjoy the vibrancy of the Oregon District by sampling food from participating restaurants, browsing through retailer’s sidewalk sales, and enjoying live music from local bands and DJs, sponsored by Omega Music.
