If you wish to be a part of promoting local business growth in our community, please join or re-join the Alachua Business League (ABL) today. Membership in the league entitles you to 1 10x10 space at no charge in each of our Alachua Main Street Festival as long as membership is completed and paid by February 28th of that year.


Becoming a member also means we would like you to attend our casual quarterly meetings where we meet to discuss various local issues and promote local businesses through networking. You also have a voice in local economic development, take advantage of collective advertising opportunities and actively participate in the development of our local economic community.

We invite you to become an ABL member by filling out this application and mailing it, with your membership check made to the Alachua Business League, to:

Alachua Business League

P.O. Box 879

Alachua, FL 32616


It is important to note that the ABL membership runs from January through December each year and all necessary dues must be paid prior to February 28th to qualify for your FREE space at both of the annual festivals.


With your involvement, the Alachua Business League can continue to work toward making Alachua a better place to live and work.


ABL’s Vision Statement


To encourage all Alachua businesses and organizations to work together to maximize success for everyone in the community, while still maintaining our high quality of life.


Our meetings are held monthly, officers are elected annually and each and every member is encouraged to participate.



Each year, the Alachua Business League helps further develop and support the entrepreneurial spirit in Alachua. We have sponsored 2 downtown festivals each year since 2003 and we celebrated our 24th festival overall in the fall of 2014. All funds raised were able to help create a student scholarship to Santa Fe College in Gainesville.
