- Visit Downtown
The county’s first (legal) brewery, rooftop dining, live jazz, performing arts, the Saturday farmers' market, and annual arts and music festivals... Downtown Clayton is where it’s happening! We have mom-and-pop shops that have flourished for decades and new businesses bringing even more variety into downtown. Stroll along our sculpture trail, enjoy a community garden, shop, dine and sip - all in Downtown Clayton.
Downtown Clayton’s vision is to be the regional center for artistic expression and a destination where people, businesses and the arts thrive.
Annual Downtown Sculpture Trail
The Clayton Sculpture Trail is an outdoor public art trail with permanent locations throughout town. The trail offers the perfect way to appreciate beautiful works of art while exploring Clayton.
Art & Public Squares
Many downtowns are deserted - ours is full of art and events all year!
