Clarkdale Arts & Entertainment District
ADA Acessibility Notes
Streets, sidewalks and all businesses within the District are ADA accessible.
The Clarkdale Arts and Entertainment District was established in 2013. Located in the Clarkdale original historic business center, the District has been host to a number of wonderful events since its creation.
At the heart of the District is the area of Main Street originally constructed in the early 1900’s to support the company town of Clarkdale. These historic buildings now house restaurants, museums, art galleries, wine tasting, a local market and two historic taverns.
At the north end of the district is the famous Clarkdale Town Park built for the original residents of Clarkdale and still enjoyed today for free concerts and outdoor movies. The Park is also the focal point for the annual 4th of July and Halloween celebrations.
The District is the strongly beating heart of the historic town of Clarkdale.
