Dayton Arts are the topic of this week’s chat with host Libby Ballengee and guests Val Beerbower from the Downtown Dayton Partnership and Karen Maner from Culture Works. They are all excited about the annual “Art in the City” event, happening again this week on Aug 3, 2018 – and will happen again in 2019 too!
This signature event celebrates Dayton’s rich collection of visual and performing arts! From 5 to 10 p.m. you’ll encounter live performances on three stages and elsewhere, art-making stations, vividly decorated city blocks, theater performances, an artisan market, patio parties, live music, and other fun activities with more than 400 local artists throughout downtown! Don’t miss the BIG Party on the Patio at 5th & Jefferson, featuring beer, wine, and tons of entertainment (including the Dance Stage and live music from Sonic Mojo), going strong until 10 p.m.
Hop on and off free pedal wagons running on Jefferson and St. Clair streets, or one of the free RTA shuttles making a loop around downtown. Parking is available for $3 at the Main Street Garage (Main & Monument), for $1 after 6 p.m. at the Oregon District Garage (Fifth and Jefferson), and for free at K12 Gallery (341 S. Jefferson) and in the Arts Garage (Second and Ludlow).
Want to perform on the Art in the City community stage? We’ll be programming it from 5 to 7 p.m. with community members who want to show off their singing, performing, poetry/spoken word, or other artistic talents. We’ll provide some speakers and a microphone, and you provide the entertainment! Click here to sign up for your performance time slot.
