"Best Burger on The Eastern Shore"
Fairhope's Grill & Bar

As we go about touring the variety of eateries on the Eastern Shore it always interests me to find out who frequents the establishment.  Fairhope Grill and Bar is one place that I would consider the "Cheers" of the area. It has a true dedicated clientele that faithfully frequent the facility. Located on Hwy 98 in the center of Fairhope it is a perfect gathering place.   see more...

27th Jubilee Festival

The 27th Annual Jubilee Festival, held in Olde Towne Daphne this past Saturday and Sunday, was a BLAST! The weather on Saturday was just perfect. And the first part of Sunday was so cool and comfortable. What a great crowd we had both days. So happy to see so many families turn out. We had some of the finest fine arts and crafts exhibited for sale from all over the Southeast. The Kids Art in the Park was exciting. The kids got to explore their creative side with hands-on activities. The Entertainment Stage featured some of the best in the region. And the classic festival food was delicious. We even offered a Craft Beer Garden this year which was enjoyed by many folks.

These are our booth winners of the Jubilee Festival.

Thank you again to our sponsors
And to the 2015 Jubilee Committee
