Visitors to Dexter Daze 2015 are invited to partake in the arts, community and entertainment that are on display during this yearly community celebration extravaganza each year, which organizers feel has reached a high point in 2015.
The festival continues to grow out from Monument Park off of Central and Main Streets into the expanded site north of that central location in the relatively new Mill Creek Park. Over 100 business booths will be set up at Monument Park, where the event’s core musical and other entertainment will be staged at the Monument Park gazebo.

Listen to Dexter Daze Committee Chairperson Tom Paup discuss what makes Dexter Daze so special this year, as well as the core philosophy of how the committee focuses this community’s largest and most significant community festival each year.
Dexter Daze started as a “sidewalk days” event in the 1970s that was intended as a means of local businesses to offer their wares to the public. The event quickly added a parade, pie-eating contest, and other fun attractions and activities to expand it out from simply involved a bunch of tables covered in random merchant goods.
In 1974 the event was recast after a discussion of calling it Dexter “Days or Daze,” and from 1975 on the event has grown and evolved into what it is today.
