A Delicious Chocolate Crawl Through Dayton
The Dayton Community Development Association is hosting the 3rd annual Dayton Chocolate Crawl on Saturday, February 10th, 2018 from noon – 3pm, at participating businesses in downtown Dayton. Bring your sweetheart or your sweet tooth, buy a $10 passport online or at one of the participating businesses, and enjoy our walkable downtown while tasting complimentary chocolate treats at each stop! Each business will be showcasing their cuisine and wares along with a bite-sized sample of a chocolate treat. All proceeds from the Downtown Chocolate Crawl support the Dayton Community Development Association and community activities for YOU!
Passports for the 3rd Annual “Chocolate Crawl” can be purchased now in our online marketplace! Passports are $10.00 each. Your passport will be mailed to you and then get stamped at each business you visit on February 10th. When your passport is full, you’ll leave your passport at the last spot you visit, where it will be entered into a grand prize drawing for a Gift Basket full of Dayton goods and gift certificates to local businesses!
For fun, take a picture for Facebook or Instagram and tag daytonoregon. #daytonoregon #ChocolateCrawl . Also tag the business you’re in! We will draw from entries for downtown prizes. Show some Valentine spirit! Watch our Facebook page or our website for further information.

November 27-29, 2015
Make a trip out to the Dayton area during Thanksgiving Weekend, an Oregon wine country tradition when more than 150 Willamette Valley winemakers throw open their doors to visitors and pour special vintages, conduct exclusive tastings and lead behind-the-scenes tours. It’s a great time to visit some of the smaller boutique wineries that are rarely open to the public, and to enjoy live music and specialty food pairings during tastings. Dayton is situated less than 5 miles away from 47 of the wineries and vineyards in the Dundee Hills AVA of the Yamhill Valley, including Seufert Winery in downtown Dayton, and Sokol-Blosser, Domaine Serene, Archery Summit, and Domaine Drouhin Oregon. The Willamette Valley Winery Association offers a listing of participating wineries.
