The great thing about summer in Alabama is that there is so much to do! Whether you are looking for entertainment as a couple, as a family, or with a group of friends, you’ll find an event close by that you will all enjoy. What could be better than an event that offers great music, wonderful food and a fun, friendly, welcoming atmosphere in one of the most charming towns in the state?
That’s what you get with the Foothills Festival, a fabulous blend of Southern hospitality and relaxed, friendly fun that takes place each year in the wonderful town of Jasper, Alabama, on the first weekend of September 2019. A community atmosphere prevails in a festival aimed at keeping you happy and entertained, and enjoying the opportunity to see and buy local craft and art across the weekend.
Jasper occupies a wonderful location at the foot of the Appalachian Mountains, making this lovely place an amazing backdrop for the Coca Cola Foothills Festival. Downtown Jasper offers a historic and vibrant base for the Festival, with a relaxed yet exciting feel throughout. You can watch the live acts on the stage and dance along to local entertainers, enjoy drinks in one of the town’s bars, and sample local food from the many vendors who will be at the event.
Or, you can browse the stalls and appreciate local arts and crafts, made by people from Jasper and reflecting the culture of the town and its history. This is a place that simply exudes the South, and the Foothills Festival is a great example of Southern hospitality at its very best.
The great thing about the Foothills Festival is that entry is free. It’s a great place to take the family, settle down in front of the stage and enjoy the entertainment, and you’ll find other people doing the same. For a group looking for a day out there’s nothing to beat a festival like this, and with two craft breweries in Jasper, plus no fewer than seven great restaurants, you can also try a local brew or two in the sun!
