This year is the 16th annual two-day community arts festival, The Sideshow. It's an exciting milestone we can't wait to share with the community that has made it possible all these years. Sideshow 16 will be at The Yellow Cab building (700 E. 4th St) on Friday, May 29, and Saturday, May 20, 2023. It traditionally features a variety of artwork - including installations, sculptures and paintings - from more than 50 local artists - and in previous years we've had performances by over 40 musical acts. This year is shaping up to be the biggest one yet.
Admission is free; donations will be accepted at the door for the Erin Vasconcelos Scholarship Fund.
The Sideshow celebrates the local arts scene and is unique in Dayton for its variety and ambition. We recognize the potential of every individual to create. We empower the members of our community by helping them actualize their dreams. We value the contributions of everyone, and we support each other with a true sense of community. We know that through collaborating with others, we create something greater than ourselves.
