History of Old Timers Picnic/Weekend
Held on the last weekend in July, this annual celebration began in 1934 and was a day set aside for all Dayton residents to renew old friendships and make new ones. The picnic began as a celebration potluck with all participants contributing to one main table.
Throughout the years, the gathering has become a time of family gatherings and class reunions where old timers continue to gather. This tradition is still continuing after 85 years. In 1980 the Old Timers Picnic name was changed to the Old Timers Weekend in order to celebrate 100 years of incorporation of the City of Dayton.
The City of Dayton will provide inclusive, responsive, efficient, and ethical municipal government services to facilitate the health, safety, and livability of our community.
