Plumb Alley Day

One of the largest one-day events in this Southeast!

 ABINGDON, VA — The Kiwanis Club of Abingdon will present the 34th annual historic Plumb Alley Day on Saturday, May 28, 2016. Plumb Alley Day - which has become a must-go destination event - is rated as one of the largest one-day events in this Southeast, with over 8,000 in attendance.

Taking place in the heart of Abingdon's historic downtown district, Plumb Alley Day is a “strolling festival” along the shaded picturesque alley that runs between Main and Valley Streets.

This family-friendly funfest started in 1983 as a small neighborhood yard sale, but now features over 170 merchants offering unique one-of-a-kind gifts, art, clothing, crafts, jewelry, antiques and collectibles. Come early because the best items go fast!
