Rail Festival 2016

For vendor registration information, contact David Oroszi, david.oroszi@usa.net, phone 937-238-5655.  The mailing address is:     1000 Carillon Blvd, Dayton, Ohio, 45409

Marriott at the University of Dayton  is a new sponsor.  It is a short distance from the Carillon Historical Park.  Please consider supporting them with your business and also our other sponsors listed on the Sponsors page. Without their support Rail Festival would not be the great event that it is !

*****  New additions to Rail Festival :

–   Cannonball Paul – Old fashioned railroad music.

–   Bookworm_Bonnie   – International Queen of the Hobos – lively presentation of Hobo life.

The NEXT CPR&SS public train run will be during Rail Festival and will be free due to an Anonymous donor providing funds to operate the trains.    Thanks to this generous donor for their continuing yearly support to Rail Festival !    Note, however, that access to Carillon Park is still required, either by paid admission or is free for  Dayton History  members.

Visit CPRSS.org to learn more about the Carillon Park Rail and Steam Society train club and our public passenger train run schedule for 2016.

Culp’s Cafe and the  Carillon Brewing Company will be serving food and beverages during Rail Festival.

Please contact Joe Mock at 937-829-9135,   joe.mock@gmail.com   for any questions or constructive comments that you may have.
