What is SliceFest?
SliceFest started in 2012 as a way for hosts Slice Birmingham to thank the community for its support. Now in its the eighth year, SliceFest has morphed into a full-blown festival to celebrate music, local craft beer and the city’s best pizza.
SliceFest will continue in 2019 with a stellar lineup of musicians taking the stage. Between sets, local Lakeview talent DJ Purdy will keep the party going.
