This evening in Downtown Dayton is Art in the City. It is a celebration of Dayton's rich collection of visual and performing artists. If you go to the K12 Gallery they will be installing a giant yarn bomb to cover 7 blocks and there will be "creation stations", artist demonstrations and other interactive booths for everyone to enjoy!

And you can go to 2nd & Jefferson where collaborative Sumi Ink drawings are being made and installed on site. You can draw with them. This and more is tonight, 5-9pm all around Downtown Dayton.  

The new Main Branch of the Dayton Metro Library in downtown Dayton is celebrating its grand opening on Saturday. All kind of events and things celebrating our huge and brand new library. This is from noon to 5pm.

Maker Faire is a gathering of fascinating, curious people who enjoy learning and who love sharing what they can do. Glimpse the future and get inspired on Saturday and Sunday at the Carillon Historical park.

The Baby Boomer Festival is a vibrant celebration combining live music, food, drinks, shopping, and more. It features an 11-hour lineup of live bands playing their favorite hits from the 60's - 80's.
