Arts and Entertainment

Dale County is known for its generous support of the arts, and burgeoning artists and enthusiasts’ alike benefit from the rich artistic culture. The Dowling Museum/Ann Rudd Center, through the efforts of the Dale County Council of Arts and Humanities, offers an opportunity for local and regional artists to showcase their works to a receptive audience.

The Ozark Civic Center, with a seating capacity of over 4,000, provides the largest center of this size from Mobile to Tallahassee. It hosts a wide range of entertainment from concerts, trade shows and sporting events to the circus.

The Flowers Center for the Performing Arts is located next door to the Civic Center on College Street in Ozark. An elementary school for many years, the center was named in honor of Emma P. Flowers, principal. The auditorium seats 500 and is the scene of local high school plays, concerts, pageants and meetings.

The Ozark Area, despite its growth and success, still maintains a small-town atmosphere, which is evident in its many festivals and events that bring the community together. The Claybank Jamboree Arts and Crafts Festival, which starts the first Saturday in October, has something the whole family can enjoy.

Other popular events include a Civil War Reenactment, the Crawdad Festival, the Fourth of July Celebration, the South Alabama Pro Rodeo Classic and much more.
