Arts, Beats and Eats is a special centennial community open house celebration at the Dayton Art Institute.

Arts, Beats and Eats

FREE family-friendly celebration features crafts, food truck rally, beer garden, music & more

It's the DAI's centennial ... we're turning 100 years old in 2019, and we're celebrating with a huge community arts festival on Sunday, October 6!

This community open house is a FREE family event that will feature many fun activities and entertainment inside the museum, as well as on the museum grounds.

Inside the museum, the Mimi and Stuart Rose Auditorium will feature live entertainment, Zoot Theater will have a puppet petting zoo–recreating the famous “Weng’s Zoo” of the 1940s–in the Hale cloister, and the Shaw Gothic Cloister will host a community room, where local non-profits will be set up with information, activities, and giveaways.

On the museum grounds, a stage will feature live music from local bands Kick-N-Flava, Shakedown and Hey There Morgan throughout the day. There will also be a food truck rally, featuring Bella Sorella Pizza, Rolling Indulgence and Crème de la Crème Cakery, as well as a fall beer garden.

“The community response to our centennial birthday party in April was absolutely phenomenal,” said Dayton Art Institute Director and CEO Michael R. Roediger. “As we continue our centennial celebrations, we welcome the community back to the museum for a larger festival, as another way of saying thank you for all of the fantastic support the DAI has received over the past 100 years!”

Arts, Beats and Eats is free and open to the public, with food and drink available for purchase at the event. Entrance to the event also includes FREE admission to the museum’s collection galleries and the focus exhibitions William Preston Mayfield Photographs and Mona Lisa Today.
