It’s no secret Dayton is quite a little hub for the arts.
It’s hard to put into words, but our city has a funky, artistic personality that inspires creativity and fun at every corner.
Our entertainment options are no different. Any night of the week, there is sure to be a can’t-miss show, festival or just a fun event that gets friends together and out of the house. It’s not often people say “there’s nothing to do” in Dayton.
So we’d like to think that our Best of Dayton 2018: Arts & Entertainment winners will serve as an excellent guide the rest of this year when you’re blanking on all the action that’s going on in the area.
We present to you, your 2018 Best of Dayton winners in the following categories:
