On the Tracks 2017
October 20 @ 6:00 pm - 11:00 pm
On The Tracks takes place twice per year, in the Fall and Spring in beautiful downtown Opelika, Alabama. This year’s Fall event will be October 20, 2017 from 6 p.m. – 11 p.m.
Now in it’s 11th year, On The Tracks is the area’s longest-running food and libations trail. On a beautiful evening in both the spring and fall, the area’s finest restaurants partner with the historic Railroad Avenue retailers in the heart of downtown Opelika to offer a delicious selection of small bites. Meanwhile, wine and craft beer enthusiasts meander throughout over 25 retail establishments sampling diverse, seasonally relevant wines and craft brews. Live music sets the perfect backdrop for a delightful evening while the Main Street merchants remain open for your shopping enjoyment.
What is On The Tracks?
On The Tracks draws hundreds to Historic Downtown Opelika to enjoy a fun night on the town enjoying all that Opelika has to offer. Food vendors line the streets as live music is performed from a stage in the middle of Railroad Avenue. There are also musicians on 8th and 9th streets, playing for all to enjoy. A tasting trail takes participants through quaint shops and galleries throughout the square. There are also private group tables which allow friends and co-workers to mingle together for an unforgettable night.On the Tracks was created by Pam Powers-Smith and Richard Patton as a way to get attendees exposed to all of the stores in downtown Opelika – even the shops attendees are less frequently exposed to. The event hasn’t changed much over the years – mostly because people enjoy it the way it is! Each year, the same great atmosphere and social fun emerges in the spring and fall!
