View Venue Details
Come explore the galleries, shops, restaurants, bars, and businesses that call the Oregon Arts District home. Oregon is Dayton's oldest neighborhood, dating back to the 19th century, and its creative inhabitants are passionate about preserving the entrepreneurial spirit of their district. Nearly all of the businesses are locally owned and operated.

The Oregon Arts District has something for everyone. It's an urban oasis for anyone with an independent spirit who views life as an adventure, not a chore. Here, tattoos mix with tie-dyes, paint-splattered pants with pumps, hipster with Hilfiger, martini with mohawk, rainbow flag with rapper.

This is the place you come to peruse art, sip a latte while reading poetry, watch a film with subtitles, argue politics over a pitcher of beer, sway to live jazz or rock out to local bands, cry with laughter at a comedy club, treat yourself to some of Dayton's finest dining or grab some street food on your way out of the bars. Feed your passion for antiques and vintage merchandise or purchase cutting-edge art. Get in shape with the power of martial arts or the grace of yoga.

Whatever your curiosity, there's an adventure to be had in the Oregon. The district's ever-growing mix of businesses has created an eclectic brew of educational and entertainment options. It's a combination you won't find in too many places - and it's uniquely downtown Dayton. When you're here, you'll feel it. Independent. Creative. Adventurous. Cool.
