Protective presents Picnic at Railroad Park

Presented by Protective Life and Railroad Park at Railroad Park

Protective presents Picnic at Railroad Park is family-friendly day at Railroad Park where we are inviting the community to join us in celebrating our city’s rich and diverse music, food, drinks, neighborhoods, small businesses, makers and artists. 

Music: Enjoy live music and local performing arts groups on TWO stages! Let us entertain you at the Main Stage on the Regions Bank 17th Street Plaza and our Showcase Stage in the Protective Life Meadow. Both stages will feature a mix of musical genres.

Birmingham Showcase: The Protective Life Meadow of Railroad Park will be dedicated to local merchants, artists, and organizations displaying goods and information, highlighting the diversity and variety of what Birmingham has to offer. You’ll find apparel, jewelry, home decor, art, candles and more!

Food Truck Row: What’s a picnic without food? While you are welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy, we’ll have some of Birmingham’s best food trucks offering yummy options to satisfy your appetite. Who’s ready for some Eugene’s Hot Chicken or a Travis Chicago Style Burger? This area is proudly sponsored by Regions Bank. NOTE: Cooler and bag checks will be implemented. Glass and outside alcohol violate Railroad Park Rules. We’ll have bars set up to purchase adult beverages for your convenience.

Beer Garden: A designated location in the Protective Life Corporation Meadow will host premium Good People brews for your enjoyment. Located near the Birmingham Showcase and Stage, this is the perfect place to stop for a bit of relaxation!

Lawn Games/Children’s Activities:  A children’s area will be filled with fun lawn games to keep the entire family engaged. Games will include Giant Connect-Four, Giant Checkers, Beanbag toss, and more!

99 Neighborhood Celebration: We are excited to recognize Birmingham’s 99 neighborhoods and the officers that serve our communities. Please join us at the Main Stage at 2 p.m as we honor our distinguished guests in attendance. This celebration is proudly underwritten by PNC Bank.
