Oxford

In 2014, Oxford was one of three cities in Alabama selected to become a Designated Main Street community.  Since then we have been working diligently to make downtown the hive of activity it once was.   The focus of Historic Main Street Oxford is to bring prosperity and vitality back to our historic downtown, to celebrate our past while keeping an eye to the future.

Our Main Street Success Story

With the opening of the performing arts center, the building of a sports complex, completion of the Coldwater Mountain Bike Trails, and their proximity to many popular attractions, Oxford has begun focusing on tourism. Since its completion in May, 2013, the performing arts center alone has attracted nearly 20,000 patrons with a total economic impact of $650,000. Based on the projected growth of programs and events hosted by the center, it is anticipated in 2015 the center will attract nearly 150,000 patrons with an economic impact of $4 million dollars. Situated in the heart of historic downtown Oxford, the center will act as a catalyst to drive additional investment and traffic into the area.
