It’s been months since a Foster Fest was held in downtown Dothan but families will have the chance to explore new things on those same streets this weekend.

Those planning to stroll the streets of downtown Dothan on Saturday can expect live music, arts and crafts, and more.

“Downtown Dothan merchants are hosting a Sidewalk Stroll this Saturday. Essentially, it’s an open house invitation for you to come to explore downtown merchants,” says Stix and Cones owner Brett Smith.

Those that participate will be able to check out local bands, artists, and workshops including Craft Beer 101 and Create the Next Ice Pop Flavor for Stix & Cone.

“This will be great to not only get businesses out and running as well as residents of the wiregrass area out and able to do things that they haven’t been able to in a couple of months,” says KS Handmade owner Keisha Schermerhorn.

A dozen downtown restaurants, coffee shops, boutiques, and bars will be offering stroll specials.

The two downtown museums will be participating in the stroll.

“It’s really exciting for us to be a part of that as well as an attraction we’re not really the typical merchant organization, but we want to welcome the community just like they do,” says Wiregrass Museum of Arts director and curator Dana-Marie Lemmer.

All merchants will be following social distancing guidelines set by the governor.

“We’ve planned it so that people can come and go at their leisure and at their own comfort level,’” says Smith.

There’s even something in store for the little ones.

“There will be a kid zone featuring titan magic and some other kid styled events with social distancing and sanitation practice in play at Wellington Park,” says Smith.

In the case of rain artists, musicians, and displays will be moved inside of porter hardware.

The sidewalk stroll will take place on the 100 blocks of North and South Foster and the 200 block of South Saint Andrews.
