Dayton Festivals

Your festival event guide for the greater Dayton Area, including all of Montgomery County.

Welcome to a comprehensive festival listing page and guide for Dayton, Ohio and the greater area. Once area festivals are confirmed on the main Ohio Festival Schedule, they are copied over to this page to make it easier to plan your weekend festival adventures. Please keep in mind that you should not see area festivals that have been canceled or have not yet been confirmed.

Other areas of Ohio with Festival Schedule Pages include Akron-Canton, Cincinnati, Cleveland, Columbus, and Toledo.

Otherwise, for other areas of the state or all of Ohio, please refer back to the Ohio Festival Schedule.

Festivals listed here include music festivals, art festivals, food festivals, town festivals, church festivals, cultural festivals and more, but they do not include craft shows, machinery shows, bazaars, county fairs and some other events that can be found on the Fairs, Shows, Expos, Bazaars Page.

“My Review” means that it’s a link to my review of that festival.

While I am doing my best to update festival postponement dates, cancellations or note alternative versions, some festivals listed as going on may have been canceled or changed without my knowledge.

Always check festival information before attending as things are constantly changing and I know what it’s like to arrive at a festival location and find nothing.

Stay strong, be safe and let’s festival on together!
