About UsArts in the Alley
Welcome to Arts in the Alley 2020 Home Edition.
As we contemplated what to do with Arts in the Alley 2020, the question quickly moved from ‘Do we still hold the event?’ to ‘How in the world do we NOT hold the event?’ Our 41-year-old Grove City institution could not be left behind. We planned from a solution view rather than problem view and marched through countless challenges one step at a time. We are so very excited that you are here to celebrate this new version of Arts in the Alley with us. You’ll enjoy our Vendors, the Craft Show, Fine Arts Show, Photography Show, Quilt Show, Youth Art Show, Judging, Peoples’ Choice Voting, Awards, Kids Fun Street with fun projects for budding artists, entertainment and the list goes on and on. We have tried to incorporate every piece of the event that you love into our new Arts in the Alley 2020 Home Edition. Ok, I guess you can’t smell the all the wonderful concession treats, but our site will sure tell you where you can find those goodies. It’s all here, and we sincerely hope that you take your time and enjoy every bit of it, just as if you were in our historic Town Center in early fall. COVID19 may have caused us to take a detour but the road still ends up at Arts in the Alley.
