Southern Makers is a two-day event that celebrates the best in creativity and design with artists that live and work in the south.
The event activities, workshops, storytelling, demonstrations and maker bazaar explore and center on taking southern traditions in architecture, food, fine art, fashion and design and applying them in a modern sustainable world.
We hope that visitors will learn a little something about why the south is a unique and creative place to live, discover and visit.
So I was looking through our calendar (plus a couple of my own sources, just to make sure I hadn’t missed anything), and noticed something: this upcoming week has a TON of incredible concerts! Birmingham nightlife is picking up steam as we head into summer, and a surprising amount of it is free. So apologies to those who don’t like music (you monsters!) for my recommendations this week (which aren’t ALL music, but there’s a lot)!
As the weather warms up, so does the event roster! This week’s top ten brings the heat with everything from music to octane to gumbo, and it’s all here at your fingertips. Careful with our band links if you’re at work!
“With revitalized neighborhoods and a ramped-up food culture, Alabama’s largest city boldly returns to the stage and sings to a bigger audience.” ~ From the Washington Post article titled –You’re Going Where? Birmingham
