Deeds Carillon Concert Series

Typically held on Sundays and during Carillon Historical Park’s main events, Deeds Carillon concerts are performed by carilloneur Alan Bowman. At 151-feet, with 57 bells, the limestone Deeds Carillon-the Park’s namesake-is Ohio’s largest carillon.


Carillon Park Concert Band

Watch the area’s top high school musicians come together to play classic pieces.


Rail & Steam Society Train Schedule

The Carillon Park Railroad was built with education by demonstration in mind: a complete operating 1/8th scale railroad with the sights and sounds of the railroad industry from its earliest days to the present. All locomotive types – steam, electric and diesel – are operated on the railroad and serve to both preserve and demonstrate historical technologies.


Clodbusters Base Ball

Typically holding games on Sundays, and during Carillon Historical Park’s main events, the Clodbuster Base Ball Club play 1860s base ball (spelled using two words until the 1880s). Enjoying the game the “way it was meant to be played,” the Clodbusters dress in period uniforms and adhere to 1860s rules.
