Art in the AlleyArt in the Alley


On the first Thursday of each month, from 5-8 pm, downtown Fort Payne comes alive with artists, musicians, food vendors, and people as we showcase and celebrate the importance and abundance of area talent with a celebration in downtown Fort Payne.

Art in the Alley was inspired by Fort Payne Main Street, in partnership with Boom Town Makers Market, a project of Landmarks, the Historic Association of Dekalb County, (501c3), and the Fort Payne Chamber of Commerce. These organizations work toward the common goals of local prosperity, preservation and community growth.

Vendor/Artist set up begins at 4 pm. Everyone begins to congregate after work at Boom Town Makers Market on the corner of Gault and 4th Street, across from the Alabama Band statues, to view the latest things the market has to offer. From there, meander at your own pace to the DeKalb Theater Courtyard, Radiovizions, The Spot, or other local venues offering food music, beverages, and shopping. For more information contact:
