Fairhope, Alabama, is famous for its kaleidoscope of flowers that paint the city like nature's brushstrokes, creating picturesque backdrops for everyday strolls and cherished celebrations.

From vibrant azaleas and delicate magnolias to cheerful tulips and classic roses, our town’s floral heritage reflects the colorful history of our creative, coastal community. It is this ever-changing yet timeless landscape that continues to inspire artists and beckon visitors season after season.

For over 70 years, our flower-lined streets have proudly hosted the Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival. While it has grown and evolved throughout the years, it remains a familiar family tradition for so many. During this three-day event, our population of 22,000 swells to nearly 300,000 as our downtown streets come alive with creativity, showcasing the best in art, food, and entertainment in our blossoming community, full of southern charm.

Join us for the 72nd Annual Fairhope Arts & Crafts Festival as we celebrate "Fairhope in Bloom"—a tribute to new growth and the honoring of timeless traditions.
