LadyFest Dayton is still going strong.
The annual two-day salute to the contributions of women in the arts will take place this weekend at the Yellow Cab Building in the Oregon District.
As always, local musician Paige Beller and her team of do-gooders have been in constant idea mode to make this year’s festival of music, visual art, comedy and poetry even more entertaining than all its predecessors. Here are four things that should do just that.
LadyFest will open up with bouts from strong women wrestlers from Dayton and beyond thanks to POSER Wrestling.
🎨 ART AND MORE ART
Beller and her crew have brought on over 40 visual artists this year including Alyshia Osborn, Caitlin Curtis, Jen Dyke and many, many more.
🎵 LIVE PERFORMANCES
Over a dozen bands with female musicians and/or vocalists are part of the lineup for the festival including Moira, Enzo, Houseghost, Penny Wishes and Far From Eden. There will also be an acoustic stage presented by SONA: The Society of Neutral Angels.
🧵 EVEN MORE VENDORS
This year’s version of LadyFest also offers even more vendors. More crafts, clothes, trinkets, gadgets and everything in between will be available to ogle and purchase.
🍻 LADYFEST BEER
Ladyfest has teamed up with Branch and Bone Artisan Ales for a rare — as in only two barrels ever made rare — Raspberry Cheery Berliner Weiss. From the sounds of it, you won’t want to miss the chance to taste the 'Hey Girl Hey Rozay.' One keg will be tapped each day, so plan accordingly.
