With more than 70 shops, galleries, and small businesses, Railroad Square is the haven for the CREATIVES of Tallahassee…
Railroad Square is best known for the exciting and popular First Friday festival, which occurs on the first Friday of every month, providing a lively, enjoyable experience with open galleries/shops, live music, and food. However, we encourage you to check out the Art District during other times of the month. Many Railroad Square businesses open Thursday through Sunday each week, with a few businesses open every day except Monday. Railroad Square is the place to go to support creative LOCAL businesses and experience a variety and uniqueness not found in any other single location in town...from vintage, thrift, and antique stores, to art galleries, creative shops, a non-profit theater, an authentic pinball arcade, a gaming shop, a cult cinema, the largest indoor rock climbing gym in the region, and a specialty kayak shop...there's something for everyone! Food and beverage options include the Square Mug Cafe, Gamescape Cafe, Railroad Square Crafthouse, and the Crumbox Gastgarden, which is the only cafe in town built out of a real railroad caboose!
Please pardon our dust! A hotel is being built at the Railroad Avenue entrance, which will bring additional visitors to the Art District! In addition to Railroad Avenue, you can alternatively enter Railroad Square from FAMU Way. We look forward to seeing you soon!
