Tuscaloosa Festivals

Tuscaloosa is better known for its post-game celebrations rather than its annual festivals. That doesn't mean that we don't know how to have a good time in a family setting.

 

Kentuck Festival of ArtsKentuck Festival of Arts - This annual event takes place during the third week in October near the banks of the Black Warrior River in Historic Downtown Northport. This nationally recognized event brings in visitors and artists from all over the United States. As several hundred talented artists bring thier creations, several thousand visitors come to pay tribute to thier skills. Those crowds come not only for the art, but also for the artistry of the days of old. Several artisans provide live demonstrations of blacksmithing, furniture making, quilting, and potting. There are music acts performing on stages and many varied foods available. Prepare your senses for some good old clean Tuscaloosa family fun.

 

Moundville Archaeological ParkMoundville Native American Festival - This annual festival takes place at the Moundville Archaeological Park in Moundville, AL. Native American performing artists, craftspeople, and musicians entertain and educate visitors about the rich culture and heritage that makes Southeastern Indians unique. Visitors can look forward to learning about the society and culture that existed there 800 years ago.

 

dickens downtownDickens Downtown - An annual Victorian holiday celebration known as Dickens Downtown takes place on the first Tuesday night in December in Downtown Northport. Dickens is a community supported gathering to celebrate the true spirit of Christmas involving Theatre Tuscaloosa performing scenes from "A Christmas Carol", local choirs, the 5th Alabama Regimental Band, a real English Town Crier, father Christmas, and business and neighborhood open houses. As the area comes alive with characters and props straight from 'A Christmas Carol', local shops offer hot coacoa and cookies. This truly is one of the Tuscaloosa area's funnest events.

 

 

Sakura FestivalSakura Festival - The Sakura festival celebrates the symbolic moment when a cherry blossom petal detaches itself to float earthward which reminds one of the paradoxically  fleeting yet enduring nature of life. Every March Tuscaloosa celebrates it's ties with Japan and it's Sister City of Narashino City.  This festival features a Haiku Contest.
