Art Events

Art in the AlleyOn the first Thursday of each month, downtown Fort Payne comes alive with art, music, food and people as we showcase artist, poets, restaurants and musicians, to create synergistic-connectivity.

Imagine multiple downtown venues open for business every first Thursday with food and beverage vendors, artist exhibits throughout businesses in downtown Fort Payne, street/pop-up/sidewalk artists, from 5 to 8 pm, carried on through the evening at local restaurants who also use the same theme.

Why? To develop and enhance kinetic energy and Economic Vitality through public arts and community participation for locals as well as out of town visitors.

As an initiative of Boom Town Makers Market, and in conjunction with partners, Fort Payne Main Street and the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce, we work toward the common goals of local prosperity and community growth.

Sponsorship’s are available. To learn more, contact us at
