Ten Reasons to Love Downtown Gadsden First Friday

Family fun all year-long! That's right.....all year long! There are twelve months in a year ergo 12 First Fridays. December? North Pole Stroll and City Tree Lighting. March? Nonprofit Organizations come out. Summer brings huge crowds, but do yourself a favor and check out some of the other seasons as well.

Great shopping! The downtown Gadsden merchants stay open late with specials and sales. Sample a variety of gourmet foods in King's Olive Oil. Check out all things southern at The Alabama Gift Company. Shop great boutiques for that special outfit or accessory. Purchase local art. There's something for everyone.

We like to say that Downtown Gadsden has more culture per square foot than any other small town, downtown in America. You'll find the Gadsden Museum of Art, Mary G. Hardin Center for Cultural Arts, plus several murals and public art installations.
