Donations & Sponsorships

Donate To The Festival

Big donations may be important to achieving our goals, but small donations matter too; matter more than most people realize. Have you ever hesitated to give because you didn’t think that your ‘small’ donation would make a difference? If you have, think again. Because, small gifts have always made a difference.

In 1938, a campaign to combat polio was launched and folks across the country were asked to ‘join the cause’ and send in a single dime to President Roosevelt. This “March of Dimes” raised $1.8 million in the first year with $238,000 arriving one dime at a time.

In 2012, Salvation Army bell ringers raised a record $139 million – one coin or dollar bill at a time.

A dollar can really stretch a lot further than you may think. Combining your donation with others, your impact will grow. Try donating because Small Can Be Big —even if you don’t have a lot to give

One dime or dollar at a time — when added together every donation will have an impact.

Sponsor The Festival

It is time, once again, for The Dayton Ole Tyme Days Festival. The festival’s primary objective is to provide scholarships for graduating seniors and to promote local and area businesses. Promoting those businesses during the Ole Tyme Days Festival generates funds that provide scholarships for graduating Dayton High School Seniors. The annual festival is run and managed by local volunteers and will be taking place in Downtown Dayton, Texas on Friday, April 22; Saturday, April 23 and Sunday, April 24, 2022.

The Ole Tyme Days is a 3-day festival showcasing a variety of Craft and Food vendors, live music and entertainment, Antique Tractor Show, BBQ Cook-Off, Jr Chili Championship, Car & Bike Show, Jeep & 4X4 Show, the Carnival, and last, but not least, The Lil Miss and Lil’ Mister Dayton Ole Tyme Days Pageant. For many years the youth of Dayton have benefited from the ongoing generosity of local businesses and the success of previous festivals thanks to companies and individuals just like you. We thank you very much.

Dayton Ole Tyme Days is a 501c3 Tax Deductible Organization - 76-0527126 and all donations, monetary or otherwise are a tax-deductible expense.
