The beginning of every month starts with a bang in downtown Dayton. First Friday is a free event held from 5-10p at several locations throughout downtown.
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, and fun than First Friday, 5 to 10 p.m. Friday, April 1. Shopping opportunities abound with Dayton Crafty Con, an expo featuring handcrafted items made by local vendors taking place at the Yellow Cab Tavern, or the annual Derby Day fashion show featuring styles from Clash Dayton and hats by Brim, which will take place in the Oregon District.
Other returning First Friday favorites include the Courteous Mass bike ride, departing from Fifth Third Field, gallery openings at the Dayton Visual Arts Center and K12 Gallery and TEJAS (both located on Jefferson Street), and dining specials, happy hour pricing, wine tastings, and more from downtown businesses. Live music at various downtown watering holes will keep guests dancing into the night.
