Join us in celebrating Birmingham's Community!

Here are some of the activities we're planning for a great Picnic at Railroad Park:

  Music: Local musicians, DJs and performing arts groups will perform to keep the audience engaged throughout the day's festivities. A main stage will be located at the Regions Bank 17th Street Plaza, as well as a secondary stage on the Park's Hillside overlooking the "Birmingham Showcase" and Beer Garden.

Birmingham Showcase: The Protective Life Meadow of Railroad Park will be dedicated to local merchants, artists and organizations displaying goods and information, highlighting the diversity and variety of what Birmingham has to offer. A secondary stage and Beer Garden will bookend the "Birmingham Showcase."

Piggly Wiggly Plaza: A reserved section of Regions Bank 17th Street Plaza will be provided for distinguished guests including sponsors, donors, and Birmingham neighborhood officers. This shaded plaza will include seating, complimentary boxed lunches and non-alcoholic drinks, a private bar and other amenities.

99 Neighborhood Celebration sponsored by PNC Bank: Neighborhood officers for each of Birmingham's 99 neighborhoods will be personally invited to Picnic at Railroad Park. Officers in attendance will have access to the Piggly Wiggly Plaza and the amenities described. All officers will be asked to come to the stage during the event program to be recognized for their service.

Lawn Games/ Children's Activities: A children's area will be filled with fun lawn games to keep the entire family engaged. Games will include Giant Connect-Four, Giant Checkers, Inflatables, Beanbag toss and more!

 Good People Beer Garden: A designated location in the Protective Life Corporation Meadow will host premium local brews for your enjoyment. Located near the Hillside stage and the Birmingham Showcase, this is the perfect place to stop for a bit of relaxation!

Food Truck Row sponsored by Regions Bank: Select food & beverage vendors will be invited to set up along 1st Avenue South. Vendors will include Railroad Park's existing partners, as well as popular food trucks, allowing individuals to purchase meals at the event.

Whether you decide to make a donation, purchase a picnic or participate in free activities, we hope you’ll join us in celebrating. We’d love for you to be a part of this event.
