Presented by the Decatur Jaycees, the Riverfest in Decatur features “BBQ, bands, and brews” – it’s officially sanctioned by the state of Alabama as an official State Barbecue Championship competition.
Another of Decatur’s famous festivals is the Alabama Jubilee Hot Air Balloon Classic, held in May. With its roots dating back to 1978, the Alabama Jubilee features free admission and parking, an array of games, arts & crafts, live performances, and plenty of food.
