On Sunday, May 27, Heritage Day with The Dayton Philharmonic returns to Carillon Historical Park, signaling the onset of summer in the Miami Valley.
The Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra closes out Heritage Day, playing patriotic favorites and attracting a huge audience, as the sun sets over Carillon Historical Park. But there is much more than music at this family fun event. From musket firing to candle making to theatrical performances, Heritage Day creates a one-of-a-kind living history experience.
In addition to Carillon Historical Park’s collection of permanent exhibits and buildings, the event features a full schedule of entertainment. Highlights include a Civil War encampment, No Regrets Barbershop Quartet, Make It Dayton 3D printing, one-room schoolhouse lessons, Gem City Swing dancers, rug-hooking, letterpress printing, gardening, woodworking, baking, high-wheel bicycle riding, Carillon Park Rail & Steam Society miniature train rides, the Clodbusters 19th century base ball team, the Carillon Park Concert Band, and more.
Amongst the chirp of crickets and the glow of fireflies, Heritage Day with the Dayton Philharmonic helps ring in summer, creating a Memorial Day weekend to remember.
