“AirWave is a celebration of everything our rivers do for us, where we all come together to support their conservation,” said Dan Morriss, AirWave producer. “Guests can expect a wide variety of musical performances and artistic displays as they enjoy Avondale’s recently remodeled outdoor concert space.”

Sponsorships, merchandise sales, optional donations, and proceeds from beer sales at the event will equally support all three of Greater Birmingham’s Waterkeeper organizations.
