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.
Two big things to know about this year’s event:
1. All are welcome to Ladyfest Dayton this weekend. This event isn’t just for the ladies.
2. This year, Yellow Cab Tavern will donate the door proceeds to The Dayton Foundation to aid the victims and families hurt by the recent tragedies in the Dayton community.
This is an annual, volunteer run event celebrating women in art and music.
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.
