Festivals in Central Alabama

Montgomery & Birmingham Lead the Way


Alabama Festivals

Festivals in Central Alabama

Centrally located Alabama cities like Tuscaloosa, Birmingham, and Montgomery are all near or home to entertaining festivals throughout the year.

On your next Alabama vacation, be sure to venture into the central area and enjoy the festivities at the Alabama Shakespeare Festival, or the Irondale Whistle Stop Festival.

Less than 20 miles east of Birmingham is Leeds. Incorporated in 1887, Leeds is a pleasant suburb of Birmingham, and home to the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum.

In September, Leeds hosts its annual Leeds Downtown Folk Festival and John Henry Celebration. Bring the family and celebrate the eclectic history of folk music. Taste food from local artisans, enjoy free parking, and enjoy the scenic drive from Pelham or Gardendale.

Another of Birmingham’s charming suburbs is Irondale. Irondale is said to be the setting for the famous Fried Green Tomatoes book and movie. In late September, venture into Irondale from nearby Bessemer and check out the Irondale Whistle Stop Festival – don’t forget to check out the Irondale Café and their famous fried green tomatoes.

Head south into Montgomery and check out the Alabama Shakespeare Festival. Slightly different than most festivals in that it is a revolving, year-round event, with up to nine performances in a year, the Alabama Shakespeare Festival takes place at the Carolyn Blount Theatre. Make the drive in from Clanton or Opelika.
