Birmingham Freedom Fest is an event for the community to discuss social issues and shine light on inequality— the best place to learn how to be an ally for public good.

This is the third year Birmingham has hosted the event.

“The City of Birmingham is once again a proud sponsor of this year’s Freedom Fest event. In light of the challenges that 2020 brought us, our residents are in the mood to celebrate, and this annual showcase of thrilling musical performances and insightful conversation is ready to recapture the celebratory spirit of our city.”

Randall Woodfin, Birmingham Mayor from ‘Birmingham Times’

Freedom Fest is sponsored by Alabama Power, Regions Bank and Ed Farm.
