If a craft show isn’t enough of a draw, it’s also a fundraising event for Sideshow, a free celebration of the art and music scene in Dayton. It’s not a commercial event; no price tags will be on these pieces. Since this is a non-profit event, artists are asked to help with setup and tear down of the event.
“The Sideshow is a community driven event. We are a diverse group of individuals who wish to express ourselves to the Dayton Metro area. There will be no monetary gain from this endeavor. The gains will be found in personal growth and human connection. The show will be supported solely by members of our community.” – Laurana Wong, Sideshow Originator
