The Alabama Ballet, Alabama Symphony Orchestra, Alys Stephens Center, Red Mountain Theatre and Opera Birmingham are all teaming up to host the first Birmingham Arts Drive-In next weekend, July 30 and July 31.
The show will take place in the parking lot of 16th Street and University Boulevard on UAB’s campus, where attendees will park and enjoy the show from the safety of their own vehicles.
Although the event is free, spots are limited and must be reserved in advance by claiming a ticket. Unfortunately, it has already sold out BUT there are still ways you can see the show and support the arts in Birmingham.
Alternative Ways to Watch 👀
Already have your tickets? Make sure to arrive between 7-7:45PM. After that window, the remaining spaces will be released to a waiting list, first-come-first-served. The performance will begin at 8:30PM and no vehicles will be admitted after 8:15PM, so don’t be late! The show ends at 9:45PM, and you can get all the details on their site or Facebook Event Page.
