Arts in the Alley Festival Documents
40 Years of Celebrating Art
Arts in the Alley stretches along the streets of Broadway and Park. Tents are set up from Grove City Road to Grant to accommodate over 120 juried Artists and Crafters along with those artists who are located East on Park Street to the Library and West on Park Street past City Hall.
As one of central Ohio’s longest-running music and arts festival, the Arts in the Alley event has certainly grown from its once humble beginnings, literally in the alley behind the businesses along Broadway and Park Street.
This now 40-year-old festival has made its way out of the alley of yesterday and now stretches along the streets of Broadway and Park. Tents are set up from Grove City Road to Grant to accommodate over 120 juried Artists and Crafters along with those artists who are located East on Park Street to the Library and West on Park Street past City Hall. In the area, the Arts in the Alley event is known as the festival that closes the summer and kicks off the fall season.
The Parade which is in its 30th year is done in partnership with the Grove City Girls' Club.
“ I am a true believer in partnerships, collaboration and teamwork and Arts in the Alley and the Arts in the Alley Community Parade reflect collaboration in its truest sense.” said Shawn Conrad “While the Grove City Area Chamber of Commerce is responsible for Arts in the Alley and the Parade, without our partners, The Grove City Girls' Club, The City of Grove City, Jackson Township, the Grove City Division of Police, the town Center merchants, our 600+ members, our generous sponsors, our amazing staff, the artists and vendors and the hundreds of donated hours given by volunteers – there would be no event. I am very proud and blessed to be part of this wonderful community and to be able to serve through my work at the GCACC.”
