DAYTON – After careful consideration, Dayton History has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Fleurs de Fête, originally scheduled to take place on Sunday, May 17. We look forward to resuming the original “Party in the Park” in 2021!
Dayton History decided to take this action based on the most recent recommendations and directives from Ohio Governor Mike DeWine, the Ohio Department of Public Health, and the CDC to limit public interactions and the spread of COVID-19 in our community. While we are disappointed not to be moving forward, it is in the best interest of our guests, vendors, volunteers, and employees.
To everyone that has supported this event over the past 28 years, including the locally owned and operated restaurants that have partnered with us, we cannot thank you enough for contributing to the growth of the event. We look forward to coming back even stronger in 2021. The funds raised with this food and wine festival help Dayton History and Carillon Historical Park share the Dayton region’s unique stories and preserve over 45 Historic buildings and 3 million community artifacts.
