The city of Red Bay is a growing and busy place, with home-grown companies providing economic stability. Sunshine Feed Mills, which produces Sunshine Pet Food as well as George Jones Pet Food, began in Red Bay and now produces dog and cat food nationally. Another local company with roots in Red Bay is Tiffin Motor Homes, which produces Allegro brand recreational vehicles that can also be seen traveling on highways throughout the country.

Small town USA is still alive and well here. The local school combines all grades K-12 at one location. Entering Red Bay from the west, towering oaks form a tunnel as you enter main street. Planted in the 1930s by the Red Bay Garden Club, the trees are a tribute to the citizens' pride and care which allowed the community to celebrate its 10th anniversary as a Tree City USA.

Another jewel in Red Bay's crown is the Arts and Entertainment Center. The A&E contains a large banquet room, a garden room and a community theatre.  The Bay Tree Council for the Performing Arts is responsible for reviving the theatre and provides many wonderful plays throughout the year. Everything from "Harvey", to "Little Women" has been presented. Our community theater an audience from throughout Northwest Alabama and Northeast Mississippi.
