Become a Sponsor!
Becoming a sponsor is a great way to engage face to face with your audience in Bessemer and the Birmingham, Alabama area.
The festival has been chosen for numerous years as one of the top food festivals in Alabama.
There is something to do for the entire family including a large kids corner with activities and games.
Besides great music, the festival offers a variety of booths including arts and crafts, outdoor exhibits, and a diverse selection of vendors selling tempting offers.
Since 2010, the festival has provided funding for Alabama charities including Caring Men and Caring Women, Red Mountain Grace, Children’s of Alabama, Bessemer Education Enhancement Foundation, Clay House, Hands On Birmingham, Ady’s Army and Latch and Live Foundation.
