Downtown Gadsden- Next Friday, July 7th, is First Friday in Downtown Gadsden! We invite you to come join us downtown from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m, stroll up and down the sidewalks and celebrate all that is great about Downtown Gadsden! July is Independent Retailer month, so make it a point to visit the independently owned businesses that will be open late just for you! You will be sure to find hidden treasures that you might have been missing.
Broad Street will be closed from 1st-7th Streets beginning around 4:30pm. Food vendors will line the 400 block of Broad Street and downtown restaurants will be open to serve you. Classic cars will cruise in and be on display up and down Broad Street. Make sure to explore our local art galleries, enjoy live entertainment and discover all that is great about Downtown Gadsden.
