Featured Entertainers

Featured Entertainers are individuals or groups who are not part of the DIFI organization–and often not from the Dayton area. Here’s the lineup so far for 2019.

Arguably the finest Eastern European dance company in North America is Pittsburgh’s TAMBURITZANS.  Several years ago we had them for just one day but in 2019 they’ll be here for both Saturday (5 performances) and Sunday (4 performances).

The very popular KENYA SAFARI ACROBATS will be returning this year. The World’s premier African Acrobats; hailing from Mombassa Kenya2Kenya, will leave you astounded and amazed at their extraordinary feats of acrobatics.

Sadly, the Burundi Drummers will not perform in 2019.  But the traditional Burundi dancers will.

STEVE FREE, an award-winning and internationally recognized guitarist, singer, and songwriter is also returning. He is a storyteller who tells his stories in song. A Native Appalachian and Native American (Shawnee/Cherokee), and an accomplished flute player he has received a nomination as Emerging Artist of the Year for the Americana Music Awards in Nashville. Listen to this sample of Steve’s music.

Neil Jacobs will be performing Spanish guitar music.

Troupe Roja, a middle eastern ensemble, will be back.


Five Points Cloggers.
