How it all got started

The first Foodstock in Dayton was held in August of 2015 on the anniversary date of Woodstock. The idea originated with Regina Weldert, who owns Rey’s Roast Coffee, which produces wholesale micro roast coffee at Blue Mountain Station. Since 2015, the annual date has moved to the third Saturday of July to coincide with Dayton’s Alumni Weekend.
