The Night Run – One Year Later

On May 11th, 2020, the Dayton Late Night scene changed forever, when Dion McElrath announced his new show, The Night Run starring Dion McElrath.
We were so lucky to meet Dion and interview him back in August, and share his story. We later then appeared on an episode too!Dionva

Since its debut on DATV, Dion and his crew have put out so many fantastic episodes. Check them out on their YouTube channel to watch all of the past episodes!
We’re looking forward to many more episodes.

A World A’Fair 2021 is Postponed

After the 2020 A World A’Fair was postponed, and then cancelled, we were so disappointed. Unfortunately, it seems like that may be the case again. Originally scheduled for Friday May 21st through Sunday May 23rd, the festival has once again been postponed, and will potentially be rescheduled for the fall.

Please enjoy some pictures from past years of A World A’Fair.
