Dayton's largest community of artists and artisans
A message from the office...
Out of an abundance of caution, Front Street has made the difficult decision to cancel our events in December including 1st Friday, and 3rd Sunday. The Christkindl Market will launch a virtual shopping guide right here, on December 4th.
Our STUDIOS and GALLERIES are still OPEN throughout the week. Please check individual artist profiles for their current hours and contact information, and remember to bring your mask and follow social distancing guidelines during your visit.
We can't wait to see you at Front Street!
The Christkindl Market will be virtual this year. Check back December 4th for the launch of our vendor directory and featured fine art, by Front Street artists.
Experience the wide variety of art Dayton has to offer every 1st Friday of the month. Our arthops include studio tours, live art demos, show openings, food trucks, and live music.
Monthly 5 PM - 9 PM
Spend the afternoon exploring our campus. Shop local vendors in the 3rd Sunday Market, tour art galleries, studios, and workshops.

Life in the City
"Life in the City" strives to showcase original artwork from artists all over the world, inspired by modern urban lifestyle and architecture. The spectrum of artwork ranges from straightforward presentation to conceptual. The exhibit is held annually at Front Street, during the month of August.
Front Street is the largest community of artists, artisans, and small business owners in Dayton Ohio, conveniently located just off State Route 35 at Keowee and 3rd Street-across from the U haul store.
Front Street is open seven days a week, while individual artists host their own hours. It is recommended you confirm hours with the individual artists prior to your visit.
For the full experience visit us during one of our three monthly open-house events and get to know our painters, jewelers, sculptors, curators, photographers, mixed media artists, seamstresses, and the list goes on.
