June will usher in the first day of Summer, and Tuscaloosa will come alive with fun events for the whole family! Here are a few of our favorites that are comping up!
Live at the Plaza – Live At The Plaza is a popular weekly outdoor concert series held every Friday night in June and July. The concerts, held at Government Plaza in downtown Tuscaloosa, are very family-friendly. Patrons bring lawn chairs and blankets to sit and watch great regional talent perform. The festival allows outside food and coolers, including alcohol. Free parking is available inside the adjoining Intermodal Facility.Art Night
Farmer’s Market -The Farmers Market at the River Market is open from 7 a.m. to noon on Saturdays ALL YEAR LONG and on Tuesdays (from Memorial Day through Thanksgiving). Vendors set up ripe red tomatoes and famous Chilton County peaches. Musicians sit propped up against the door, playing guitars as you walk in, and freshly brewed iced tea is for sale to help battle the heat. Additionally, local Food Trucks, bakers, artists, and craftsmen gather here to sell their gourmet grub, fresh-baked yeast rolls, homemade jams and jellies and hand-carved cutting boards.
