Free, one-day festival with bands, performing at the beautiful Avondale Amphitheater and vendors and community advocates filling the park.
The goal of the Birmingham Folk Festival, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, is to celebrate our rich local diversity through the presentation of its many musical traditions and styles. We hope to celebrate and contribute to the Avondale community by highlighting one of Birmingham’s most under-utilized assets, Avondale Park’s historic Amphitheater.
The Avondale Amphitheater once hosted regular concerts, plays, and pageants, and for decades served as the bustling epicenter for community life in Avondale. By staging an annual festival here, we hope to reawaken this amazing historical venue, recentering Avondale as a premier district for entertainment in Birmingham.
This is a free event that is sponsored by local businesses, passionate community members, and put together by music lovers that came together in a 501c3. Please look at facebook/website for ways how you can contribute.
