Arts in the Alley

Grove City is an Altogether Adventure® and if you’re looking for your next adventure, make sure to go to Grove City Arts in the Alley. While this well-loved tradition has changed format for 2020 (see here), you can still find plenty to do in Grove City while you’re says, “Once the parade passes through, festivalgoers begin immersing themselves in arts in crafts at Grove City Arts in the Alley. The Grove City, Ohio, art party is a multi-day event and provides a sea of over 100 exhibitors, which are juried, so you know they’re good. Everything from jewelry and fine art, to photography and pottery, are on display. The Arts in the Alley Music and Arts Festival also features food vendors, children’s entertainment and live music.”

The adventure begins in historic Grove City Town Center where festival-goers can choose from food trucks or one of many restaurants located here. Enjoy a late breakfast at The Garden Bar (open until 8 pm), grab lunch at Local Cantina or Plank’s on Broadway and save room for dinner at Plum Run Winery / Grove City Brewing Company where the tasting continues during the festival or any day with 22 wines, handcrafted ciders, brews, and cocktails. If you want your fill of beer after bourbon, stop in Hop Yard 62, where they have 21 rotating taps, wine and even mead! 


Get your heart rate up and let your spirits soar as you walk or bike through Town Center taking time to peruse four murals and the Gold Star Families Memorial.  And adventure calls at LVL UP Sports PaintballKickmaster FootgolfTrapper John’s Canoe LiveryScioto Grove Metro Park featuring the REI River Trail and that’s just the start!
