Appropriate for all ages

The Depot Days Festival rolls into Hartselle each year in September, bringing a day of free family-friendly fun and entertainment to the historic depot and downtown area. Hosted by the Hartselle Area Chamber of Commerce, the Depot Days Festival is a tribute to the railroad industry and its contribution to Hartselle and the North Alabama region. In addition to the one-day celebration, there are additional activities planned in the week leading up to the event.

Now in its 39th year, the 2019 Depot Days Festival gets underway at 8 a.m. and lasts until 4 p.m. Activities include a car, truck and motorcycle show, music performances by The Ben Parker Project and Brandon Elder, food vendors, an art show, crafts, a tractor and engine show and a variety of fun and games for children. Runners will take to the streets for the half-marathon race, a partnership between the festival and the Hartselle Kiwanis Club, at 7 a.m. at Quail Creek Golf Resort and Convention Center.
