The event of grand proportions, Sideshow, will be held May 8th from 5pm ‐1am and May 9th from 3pm‐1am at the Sideshow’s home in The Yellow Cab Building, 700 E 4th St, Dayton Ohio.
Sideshow is celebrating its 10th anniversary of creating a free show of Art and Music that all ages can enjoy. Sideshow is run entirely by volunteers and uses fundraisers and donations to offset the cost of hosting a show featuring more than 100 local artists and musicians. This event will be the biggest Sideshow yet with Sculpture, Painting, Music, Performers, Dancers, Comedy, Food Trucks, Local Brews, Photography and much much more. It will also feature a special Kid’s Sideshow portion as well as a Sideshow history exhibit featuring memorabilia from the 9 previous Sideshows.
Over the years this has become an event that draws creators from all backgrounds, all levels of skill and all media. Fostering an open creative environment that will grow talent of all kinds has been our goal from the start. Sideshow is also a proud part of Dayton’s Art in the City festival which is highlighting the amazing talent and creativity that has made its home in our city.
The Sideshow will once again open during Art in the City, downtown Dayton’s giant street party and celebration of the arts. It traditionally features a variety of artwork – including video installations, sculptures and paintings – from more than 50 local artists – and last year we had performances by over 40 musical acts. This year is shaping up to be the biggest one yet.
Admission is free: donations will be accepted to support the event.
The Sideshow celebrates the local arts scene and is unique in Dayton for its variety and ambition. The Sideshow recognizes the potential of every individual to create. We empower the members of our community by helping them actualize their dreams. We value the contributions of everyone, and we support each other with a true sense of community.
