What's Great In Dayton: August 27 - September 2, 2021


Charlie Campbell's picks for what to do and see this week in the Miami Valley.

At the Annual Greater Dayton Lebanese Festival you can enjoy their traditional food: beef and chicken shawarma, falafel, hummus, grape leaves, and baklawa, plus cold beer, and beverages, ethnic music, dance, rides for the kids, and more! Go there tonight, Saturday and Sunday.

Want to hook a kid on fishing? The fishing and worms are free so grab your pole, your family and come out for the annual fishing derby. It’s in Centerville on Saturday from 9am to noon. The Centerville Optimist Club do this so go to their website.

On Sunday is the Turkish Food Fest. Great Mediterranean and Central Asian cuisines that are known to be very rich and have many unique tastes.

Both tonight and Saturday there are bands playing at Levitt Pavilion. There is no cost for this….but you do need to bring a blanket or a chair. It’s at 7pm and to see who is playing go to: levittdayton.org

And on Sunday at the Levitt Pavilion the Dayton Contemporary Dance Company are performing. That’s at 7pm.

If you want all kinds of fresh local foods then head to the Second Street Market. Go there indoors and outdoors on Saturdays, 8am to 3pm, AND Sundays from 11am to 3pm.

At the Neon Movies there are Family Films on Saturday mornings. Tickets are given on a first-come, first-serve basis. It’s a chance for families to enjoy the movie-going experience together. There is no cost and it's at 11am.

Best of all…
