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.
“On The Tracks is a favorite event for many in the area because of the fun, relaxed atmosphere throughout downtown.” Pam Powers-Smith
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!
