Vintage Market Days returns this weekend for springtime event, benefits local non-profits!

Great shopping, fun experiences, and supporting local causes. That's what thousands of shoppers will soon see at Vintage Market Days Dayton-Cincinnati as it returns for its biggest event yet. Taking place April 21 to April 23 at the Greene County Fairgrounds & Expo Center in Xenia, this three-day event themed "Here Comes The Sun" will fill four barns with a curated selection of 130 vendors from across the country.

You'll find vintage home goods, art, children's items, signs, garden products, handmade jewelry, clothing and accessories, and more.

"Some vendors you'll only find at Vintage Market Days. We have vendors from NY and California making the journey. It's truly a special event," says Tonya Ross, owner of Vintage Market Days of Dayton-Cincinnati. "We're a kid- and pet-friendly event, plus there'll be great live music and food trucks, so it's a whole experience."

You'll also find more vintage vendors this year. "Our fans have asked for more vintage, so we've added lots of amazing vintage vendors for this event," says Ross. "These vendors have been scouring the hills and valleys across the US for the perfect vintage goods. From boho to eclectic, modern farmhouse, mid-century to primitive. There is something for everyone."

Not only is the event a fun experience that draws friends and families from across the region, but it's also for a good cause. A portion of all ticket sales benefits two local charities: Heart of Centerville and Greenview High School Athletics.

New additions to this year's event include:

  • Food truck rally with new food trucks added
  • Indoor dining hall with live music from Jim Kelly Friday, Saturday and Sunday
  • Live music from Tesa Marie added to the entrance on Friday and Saturday
  • Indoor and outdoor fun interactive photo walls
  • Free bag check near the entrance/exit

  • Build-a-tier-tray: Pick and choose seasonal sign minis to make the perfect tier tray.
  • Build-a-flower bouquet: Stop by our vendor booths offering spring floral and customize with vintage containers.
