Art After Hours: Arts in the Alley

Recurring event see all

September 21, 2019 @ 9:30 am 8:00 pm

Held the 3rd weekend every September, Arts in the Alley will be celebrating 40 years as one of Central Ohio’s longest-running music and arts festival. Its name comes from its humble beginnings virtually in the “alley” behind the businesses on Broadway and Park Streets where Artists and Crafters gathered to sell their work.

Arts in the Alley now stretches all along Broadway and Park Streets. Tents are set up from Grove City Road to Grant to accommodate over 120 juried Artists and Crafters along with those who supply their own tents and are located East on Park Street to the Library and West on Park Street past City Hall.

Music and entertainment both days will be on the Heartland Stage located on West Park Street. There is never a shortage of food! Concessions are located on East Park Street and scattered on Broadway and West Park Street.

  • Funnel Cakes
  • Fish Sandwiches
  • Grilled/Fried Bologna Sandwiches
  • Chicken and Noodles
  • Hot Dogs, Hamburgers
  • Lemonade Shake-ups
  • Sno-Cones
  • Popcorn, Pizza
  • Ice Cream
  • Smoothies and more.

All concessions are provided by our local non-profit organizations and churches.

The Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce in partnership with the Grove City Girls’ Club is thrilled and honored to be celebrating the 30th Arts in the Alley Community Parade.  The parade starts at 9:30 am on Saturday at the corner of Southwest Boulevard and Broadway. We will be announcing our Parade theme and the Parade Marshall soon!

The Arts in the Alley Parade features over 125 entries including floats, antique cars, horses, local businesses, elected officials, club officers, teams, various entertainers, churches, the Aladdin Shrine Temple Parade Team and more. Parade entries will have the option of having recorded or live music on board.  Parade spectators will also have the thrill of collecting candy and other treats that float owners hand out.

Art After Hours events are shared here to inform the artists we support about additional ways they can get involved in the local arts community.
