Located in the Discovery District of Downtown Columbus, the Alley Islands festival seeks to welcome people of all ages for a day of music, food, art and fun. Two stages, set under numerous new neighborhood murals, with over 20 performers, ranging from live music, comedy, circus performances and storytelling span the day. Artists, crafters, and small business artisans line the streets, capped by food trucks and local breweries. Inside, guests are welcome to visit multiple gallery spaces and a variety of artist studios. The whole day is sprinkled with street performers, delicious food and drinks and visual experiences. The cost of attendance is $10 for guests (FREE for all children age 10 and under). Proceeds from the event go to supporting the artists and performers and the Discovery District Civic Association.


Alley Islands is a partnership with the Discovery District Civic Association, the neighborhood organization made up of area local businesses and institutions. Alley Islands takes place just steps away from Columbus Museum of Art, Columbus College of Art & Design, Columbus Metropolitan Library, the Hills Market Downtown and several other cultural and commercial establishments.
