Sideshow is an annual arts and music festival, created by members of the Dayton Circus Art Collective. The two-day event features over 50 visual artists and 20 musical acts in the Yellow Cab Building on 4th Street in downtown Dayton. Kaleidoscope host Juliet Fromholt visited the Yellow Cab building ahead of Sideshow 7 as the artists prepared for a preview party. Here she speaks with several visual artists about what they'll be displaying at Sideshow 7.
This Friday marks the fall edition of Urban Nights in downtown Dayton. It's an event that showcases the music, arts, dining and housing that downtown Dayton has to offer. On this edition of Kaleidoscope, Juliet Fromholt spoke with Kristen Wicker and Krystal Luketic from the Downtown Dayton Partnership about the origins of Urban Nights and the new features at this fall's event.
Some people call it downtown's biggest party with live music stages and roving performers throughout the city. But Urban Nights isn't just about the party. It's a showcase for the arts, dining, music and even the housing available in downtown Dayton. This bi-annual event is expected to bring 30 thousand people downtown this evening.
Kristen Wicker with the Downtown Dayton Partnership says that it's also an important way to highlight the 9 out of 10 downtown businesses that are locally owned and operated.
