About Alabaster CityFest
Primary Event Organized by the Alabaster Arts Council
The mission of the Alabaster Arts Council is to advance and enrich the quality of life in the Alabaster community through the arts and art education.
Although we have several events throughout the year, Alabaster CityFest, an annual Outdoor Music Festival organized by the Alabaster Arts Council, is our primary venue for promoting family fun via music, arts and art education.

The Alabaster Arts Council officially incorporated as a non-profit 501c3 organization in 2007, but the heart of the organization has been in existence since the first Alabaster CityFest in 2003. The organizers of that event went on to found the Alabaster Arts Council to improve the success of CityFest and to take a more active role in the enrichment of arts and art education in the Alabaster Community.
