Dogwood Festival is a community celebration of the visual and performing arts. When we try to explain the vitality of arts and culture in Coshocton we point to two things: 1–Coshocton is the birthplace of the Advertising Art Industry (in the 1900’s we boasted the second highest per capita population of artists east of the Mississippi) & 2–our deeply rooted Appalachian citizenry. This is worth celebrating!
