Annual Events & Festivals

Montgomery, Alabama knows how to celebrate! And our Southern manners mean that everyone is invited to join in. Make your plans to attend a tasty food and drink event, holiday merriment or commemorative gathering. Being together with friends – both longtime and brand new – makes for a stronger community, one built around sharing. 

Let’s eat and drink! A spring favorite for sipping and socializing, Riverbend Brew Fest, held at the Union Station Train Shed, features tastings from local, regional and international breweries. The same popular location comes to life in fall with Riverwalk Wine Festival with wine tastings, vendors and live music. Enjoy the bounty of the season with Harvest Jam at The Shoppes at East Chase. It’s a beer fest, farmers market and live music event all rolled into one. 

Honoring the commemoration of the ending of slavery in the United States, Juneteenth is an important time to recognize the many successes African Americans have gained while continuing to make needed advancements. Look for events of reflection and celebration throughout Montgomery.  

From St. Patrick to St. Nick, Montgomery rings in the holidays with festive fun. You’ll have the luck of the Irish when you attend Dublin on Dexter, a family-friendly event with Irish-inspired music, food vendors and kids’ activities. Jingle and mingle with the animals during the Christmas season at the Christmas Lights Festival at Montgomery Zoo. Transformed into a winter wonderland, the zoo sparkles with lights, perfect for a stroll or train ride. 

Check out our complete calendar of events as you are planning your visit or while you are here looking for fun events to attend. We’d love to see you here!
