About Us

Celebrating the rhythms of the world It started with a vision and a love for the arts and diversity. From there, Cityfolk has turned into Ohio's only full-time, professional presenter of traditional and ethnic performing arts.

Over twenty years ago, Cityfolk's founders saw that there were very few opportunities in Dayton, Ohio for the general public to experience and come to learn about traditional arts. In addition, ethnic communities faced an ongoing and accelerated danger of losing elements of their cultural heritage if they allowed traditional artistic skills to fall by the wayside.

Cityfolk's season of events has grown into a concert season that includes Celtic, jazz and world music/dance, plus a folk festival, educational workshops, films, dance parties and cultural partnerships. With each season, Cityfolk strives to include broad cultural diversity performed by artists of the highest caliber in their tradition.
