Art in the Alley

Art in the AlleyA MONTHLY ART EVENT TO ENCOURAGE DOWNTOWN CONNECTIVITY WITH COMMUNITY & PROMOTE ECONOMIC VITALITY

SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

On the first Thursday of each month, downtown Fort Payne will come alive with art, music, food and people as we showcase the lifestyle assets of this area, and build upon those things to create synergistic-connectivity. 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, a project of Landmarks, the Historic Association of Dekalb County, (501c3), in conjunction with partners, Fort Payne Main Street and the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce, these organizations work toward the common goals of local prosperity and community growth.

Imagine multiple downtown venues open for business every first *Thursday of each month, 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.

Focus will be on our alleys, lighted with festival lights, alluding to something different…special. You can participate in this unique event by being a sponsor.
