Festival Season is upon us!

April 30, 2008

My favorite time of year is upon us.. (ok so, fall is awesome for football, summer is awesome for beaches, and winter is awesome for Christmas but…) Spring is festival season in Birmingham, so here are a few things I am looking forward to doing over the next few months…

First off, my favorite: THE MAGIC CITY BREWFEST – May 31 & June 1 at Sloss. – Over 250 beers and all the food you can grab, set to the tune of some great music. Last years festival was a blast… check out www.magiccitybrewfest.com … As a proud member of Free The Hops, I hope you can come out and enjoy this while helping us fund the fight against outdated beer laws in Alabama.

Next: Do Dah Day. – Dogs take over Caldwell Park in downtown Bham. Chloe had a blast last year. www.dodahday.org

The Buck Creek Festival in Helena. A very laid back affair around the creek in old town, complete with a rubber ducky race down the water fall. Too chill to miss. www.buckcreekfestival.com

City Stages – A pretty cool lineup this year… www.citystages.org

The Crawfish Boil – An AWESOME music lineup… Candlebox, 3 Doors Down, Seether, Flo Rida, T Pain, Gavin Degraw, and Fergie. Wow! www.schaeffercrawfishboil.com

And, although it isn’t a festival, the Farmer’s Market on Saturday’s at Pepper Place. So cool.. homemade ice cream, Okafes Coffee!!!, fresh produce, tastey baked goods, and a really cool atmosphere. www.pepperplacemarket.com

Did I miss any? I know there are others….
