Dayton's largest community of artists and artisans
Out of an abundance of caution, Front Street has made the difficult decision to cancel our events in December including The Christkindl Market, 1st Friday, and 3rd Sunday.
Our studios and galleries are still open throughout the week.
Please check in with individual artists and businesses for their current hours.
We are still here to help you complete your holiday shopping and to find that perfect gift. Our artists and small businesses are still available, so please reach out! You can visit the complex 7 days a week during normal business hours. Please remember to bring your mask and follow social distancing guidelines.
We have made the decision to make our Christkindl Market VIRTUAL ONLY. Please check back for details about how you can shop our excellent lineup of quality vendors!
