How to enjoy the Trail

On The Tracks is a fundraiser for Downtown Opelika entering it’s 24th event! We encourage you to purchase your tickets online, and early, as most events sell out prior to the date of the actual On The Tracks (Fall or Spring).

Once you’ve successfully purchased your tickets, proceed to “Will Call” in front of Cafe 123 on the evening of the event [NOTE: Will Call will close by 9 pm CST on the evening of the event]. You’ll be given a wristband and map and more to assist you as you browse all of Downtown Opelika. There will be live music and outdoor food stations and of course most of our downtown restaurants are open late.

Or, watch this brief video explaining how to enjoy, “On The Tracks” from start to finish!

This is an adult event and you must be over 21 to sample food, wine or beer.
