Oct 6, 2017

Explore downtown Dayton during First Friday. Certain volunteers will rappel "over the edge" of the 27-story KeyBank Tower. You can watch from Courthouse Square and stick around for the Over the Edge Drop Party featuring live music, food vendors, wine, and craft beer. Elsewhere downtown there are art experiences, live theater, local bands, food and drink specials. And Clash Dayton is downtown's go-to resource for Halloween costumes.

Come to the Midwest's premier outdoor adventure festival! Experience more than 25 "try it" activities, compete, camp, watch the pros, connect with national and local outdoor adventure exhibitors, learn, shop, relax with music and a beverage, and more. Saturday and Sunday.
