Join us for the 90th Academy Awards! We’ll have ballots for you to fill out before the ceremony begins – whoever correctly predicts the most categories will win a prize! Come dressed in your Oscar best, like an Oscar statue, or recreate the best (or worst) Oscar fashions from Oscars past.
Please note this event is taking place of a March Salon, so the time and date are different than other Salons because we can’t convince the Academy to stick to our schedule ¯_(ツ)_/¯
Admission to Salon is always FREE, with all the chips, salsa, and queso dip you can eat courtesy of the good folks at Rojo.
Red carpet coverage begins at 5:30 pm, Awards begin at 7:00 pm.
On Saturday, January 21, scores of Birmingham residents converged on the nation’s capitol for the Women’s March on Washington. The crowd (some estimates are over a million) came from every corner of the country and the world to advocate on behalf of women’s rights and human rights. Some of the Alabama delegation documented their experiences through social media posts and photos.
In honor of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s March on Washington, Birmingham residents will march from the A.G. Gaston Motel to Kelly Ingram Park on Sunday, August 28th at 6:00pm. The march hopes to garner support for legislation that would create a Civil Rights National Park in the city known most for its crucial role in the Civil Rights Movement.
There will also be a performance by soul artist, Ledisi, at Kelly Ingram Park.
