Explore. Create. Stay out late in Downtown Dayton.
The snow is melting and Daytonians are anxious to get outside and explore their city, and there’s no better night to catch up on food, fashion fun than First Friday, 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, April 3. In addition to regular activities at downtown’s art galleries, sales events at local retailers, food specials at independent restaurants, and shows at performing arts venues, April’s First Friday will kick off a special weekend-long celebration in the Oregon District called the Dayton Bizarre. “Dayton Bizarre will be part street fair, part art exhibit and part sideshow,” said Amelia O’ Dowd, organizer and owner of Oregon District haberdashery Brim. “It’s all about creating a vibrant street-level party that showcases the amazing independent businesses that call the Oregon District home.” In addition to the 40-plus businesses located in the Oregon District that plan to create promotions and individual events inside the businesses, more artists, street performers and vendors plan to set up on the sidewalks of the historic district as well.
The beginning of every month starts with a bang in downtown Dayton. First Friday is a free art hop featuring exhibit openings at the galleries, along with a variety of entertainment options, arts demonstrations, live music and more. Add to that everything going on at the restaurants, bars, nightclubs, theaters, comedy club, movie theater and more that make up the downtown mix. First Friday is presented by the Downtown Dayton Partnership with support from the Oregon District Business Association and Rev. Cool's "Around the Fringe" show that airs on Fridays from 8 p.m. to midnight on WYSO-FM 91.3. Visit the official First Friday page on Facebook.
