The goal of the Avondale/Forest Park Merchant Association is to help increase business traffic and number of merchants in Avondale and Forest Park. Started a few years ago with only 5 members, the Association now includes over 25 members.
The Association created and sponsors such events as the Car Show in October, Love Your Mama in May, the Movies In The Park (http://www.facebook.com/MoviesAtAvondalePark) in June, in addition to expanding the Craft Bazaar events in December.
Most recently, the Association started Third Fridays, which takes place in the merchants’ neighborhood of Forest Park and South Avondale from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM the third Friday of every month. Third Fridays promotes Avondale and Forest Park merchants and allows the Birmingham community to dine, wine and shop in Birmingham’s hippest neighborhoods – enjoying the social scene of Forest Park and South Avondale after hours! Restaurants and bars offer specials and wine tastings; shops and galleries are open late allowing the community to catch exhibits they may have otherwise missed during the day and shop for gifts while enjoying a refreshment.
