The much anticipated 7th Annual AirWave festival hosted by Good People Brewing Company to benefit Black Warrior Riverkeeper, Cahaba Riverkeeper, and Coosa Riverkeeper is scheduled for Saturday, March 24, 1:00pm to 10:pm.

The family-friendly public event features dozens of live bands, talented artists, charity exhibits, silent auction, food trucks, and Good People’s high quality beers brewed on premises.

Earlier this week AirWave gave us a sneak preview of the event and the important work it supports premiering the following video:

Sponsorships, merchandise sales, silent auction, optional donations, and proceeds from beer sales at the festival will equally support all three of the Greater Birmingham area’s Waterkeeper organizations. The three Waterkeeper Alliance groups have received generous grants from The Community Foundation of Greater Birmingham to enhance their collaborations protecting the region’s vital water resources.

“We are proud to support the initiatives of Black Warrior, Cahaba, and Coosa Riverkeepers,” said Lauren McCurdy, Director of Marketing at Good People Brewing. “Without their efforts, brewers wouldn’t be able to brew the high quality beer citizens of Alabama have come to know and expect.”

“We made AirWave an event where everyone can celebrate our local rivers, and support the organizations fighting for their conservation,” added Dan Morriss, AirWave’s producer. “Eventgoers can look forward to a waterfall of local music and artistic performances.”

Birmingham’s three Waterkeeper Alliance will benefit from the event.  Check out their mission statements below:

Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s mission is to protect and restore the Black Warrior River and its tributaries. The citizen-based nonprofit organization promotes clean water for the sake of wildlife habitat, recreation and public health in our patrol area, the Black Warrior River watershed.

Cahaba Riverkeeper is dedicated to defending the ecological integrity of the Cahaba River and its watershed, to ensuring clean water and a healthy aquatic environment, and to preserving the recreational and aesthetic values of the river.

Coosa Riverkeeper is a citizen-based river conservation non-profit whose mission is to protect and restore the Coosa River and its tributaries in Alabama. We patrol the river, educate the public, and advocate for the river.

Don’t miss this opportunity to have fun and support clean water on March 24th.
