We have a new Rail Festival sponsor:   Marriott at the University of Dayton


This Marriott is just a short distance from the Carillon Historical Park. Please consider supporting our new sponsor with your business and also all of our other sponsors listed on the Sponsors page. Without their support, Rail Festival would not be the great event that it is. **

The NEXT Rail Festival committee meeting will be on  June 8th, 2016 at 7 PM at the usual location:       Carillon Historical Park in the main building in the Iams Room.

The ** 2016 ** Rail Festival has been set for JUNE 25 & 26, 2016.  See flyer below.
