Birmingham Events

October is certainly an busy month here in Birmingham. We are excited for all of the fall festivals, concerts and other events that have the city hustling and bustling lately. The weather is absolutely perfect for an afternoon/evening outside. While most Birmingham native's fall Saturday's are spent in either Tuscaloosa or Auburn, we've found a few other events that are fun fall festivities. Mark your calendars, you won't want to miss these!

- Josh Turner at Rogue Tavern: TONIGHT. Part of the WZZK Downtown After Sundown Fall Series. Best part? It is totally free. Come listen to great music and enjoy some of the area's finest craft beers.

- Race for the Cure: October 11. October is Breast Cancer Awareness month. Birmingham will host the Race for the Cure at Linn Park. The race is to raise funds and awareness for breast cancer, celebrate survivorship and honor those that lost their battle. The 5K is a great way to get in a good workout for a wonderful cause!
