Main Streets in Shelby County
Sunday, May 5, 2024
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Columbiana, Montevallo, and Calera are back-to-back Central Alabama Main Street communities capitalizing on their access to I-65 to attract year-round visitors and tourists. From an unexpected journey into our country's past via American Village or the Karl C. Harrison Museum of George Washington to a train ride at a Southern winery and whimsical creatures carved into the trees of a community a park, learn how these cities have leveraged resources, fostered partnerships, and successfully implemented adaptive reuse projects to expand and promote public art, develop entertainment districts, create festivals, and successfully blend collegiate and quant identities to build vibrant business districts offering something for everyone. (Note: This workshop does not include a trip to winery.)
