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 ( 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.
