Join us in celebrating Birmingham's Community!

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

  Music: Enjoy live music and local performing groups on TWO stages! Let us entertain you at the Main Stage on the Regions Bank 17th Street Plaza and our Showcase Stage in the Protective Life Meadow. Both stages will feature a mix of musical genres.

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. You'll find apparel, jewelry, home decor, art, candles, and more!

Reserved Picnics: Join us at the Piggly Wiggly Plaza by purchasing a picnic lunch in support of Railroad Park. Located on a picturesque section of Regions Bank 17th Street Plaza this area includes shaded seating, complimentary boxed lunches from Jim 'N Nick's, complimentary non-alcoholic drinks, a private cash bar and other amenities. Click here to join the fun!

99 Neighborhood Celebration: We are excited to recognize Birmingham's 99 neighborhoods and the officers that serve our communities. Please join us at the Main Stage at 2 p.m. as we honor our distinguished guests in attendance. This celebration is proudly underwritten by PNC Bank.

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, Beanbag toss and more!

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

Food Truck Row: What's a picnic without food? While you are welcome to bring your own picnic to enjoy, we'll have some of Birmingham's best food trucks offering yummy options to satisfy your appetite. Who's ready for some Eugene's Hot Chicken or a Travis Chicago Style Burger? This area is proudly sponsored by Regions Bank. NOTE: Cooler and bag checks will be implemented. Glass and outside alcohol violate Railroad Park Rules. We'll have bars set up to purchase adult beverages for your convenience.

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.
