1st Annual Tailgate of Terror
Guaranteed Premium Parking for the Oregon District's Hauntfest - And for a good cause!

Want to 'tailgate' before the big Halloween Hauntfest in the Oregon district and get a premium parking space? The Dayton Circus Creative Collective (DCCC) is hosting the first annual “Tailgate of Terror” fundraiser on October 29th at the Yellow Cab building at 700 E. 4th St. For the price of a $20 ticket, you get a guaranteed parking spot for the Oregon District’s Hauntfest, three live bands, and a fun atmosphere. DCCC encourages you to bring your grill and your cooler and tailgate before the evening’s main event, Hauntfest.

Anyone who has been to Hauntfest in the past knows that parking is always at a premium. A single $20 ticket is good for a carload – grab your friends and split the cost! The Yellow Cab parking lot is secure and within sight and easy walking distance of the main Hauntfest entrance at the corner of 5th St. and Wayne Ave. Due to the size of the lot, this is an extremely limited offer – only 70 tickets for parking are available and we encourage you to buy early. Tickets will be available for purchase starting Oct. 7th at the following Oregon District businesses: Feather’s Vintage Clothing (440 E. 5th St.), ReCreate Music Store (438 E. 5th St.) and Omega Music (318 E. 5th St.). You can also contact us directly to purchase tickets either via email at or by phone at (937) 490-9268.

The DCCC will also be hosting three bands. Kicking things off at 5pm will be The Fair Shakes. At 7pm, The White Soots, and finally C. Wright’s Parlour Tricks will perform at 9pm. And it's all included in the price of your ticket, parking AND live entertainment! DJ Jay Madewell of Fab Gear will be spinning great tunes all throughout the evening. And expect other surprise entertainment to appear.

Changing areas will be available inside Yellow Cab for those who want to wait to put on their costumes. Don’t want to drive to the show but still want to see all these great bands? Walk-in tickets will be available at the door for $5.

The Yellow Cab parking lot will open at 4 p.m. on October 29th for the Tailgate of Terror. It will remain open until 3 a.m. to allow everyone to have full enjoyment of Hauntfest.

Funds raised by this event will go to support the local arts organization, The Dayton Circus Creative Collective. Founded in 2007, The Circus is dedicated to building a nourishing environment that encourages community interaction, artistic collaboration, and the empowerment of the individual. In April of 2011, The Circus moved into the Yellow Cab building and has been working at transforming it into an arts hub for the community. Already two large art and music shows, The Sideshow and Ladyfest, have taken place there as part of Urban Nights, along with several other smaller monthly art shows and events. The potential exists in this building for much more. For more information about The Dayton Circus, contact Jeff Opt at (937) 490-9268 or at

Presented by the Oregon Arts District, Hauntfest is the region’s largest and longest running Halloween Street Party. It features live music, food, drinks, costume contests and thousands of your closest friends in downtown Dayton. For more information about Hauntfest, contact Mike Martin at 937-974-2494 or
