The Alabaster Arts Council is excited to announce that the area’s biggest and most popular free festival is MOVING to a new venue. The Alabaster CityFest will now be on the grounds of the NEW Thompson High School in Alabaster, located at 1921 Warrior Parkway. Visitors will enter from the school’s Thompson Road entrance and will find more parking, more vendors and more room to enjoy the day’s activities.
“After 15 years, this marks the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Alabaster CityFest,” says Alabaster Arts Council Sponsorship Chair Camille Herron. “We are very proud of our new school, and this is a great opportunity for people from all over the south to visit campus, as well as an opportunity for us to continue to grow the festival.”
Watch this website and social media (search “Alabaster CityFest” on Facebook) for emerging details. For now, festival organizers recommend visitors make plans to arrive for the festival at the school’s Thompson Road entrance. Visitors can also expect the same activities as years past, such as KidsFest, food and craft vendors, the drive-in car show, and of course a full day of world-class entertainment.
