Proceeds Benefit:
Magic City Art Connection is a 501c3 non-profit festival and sole recipient of all funds received through grants, donations, fees, ticket revenues and in-kind support. MCAC shares a connection and pride with our supporters in creating Birmingham’s largest spring art festival, a nexus for art, artists, cultural organizations, schools, and culinary stalwarts. Generous supporters generate these rich artistic connections, and in turn, create a solid arts legacy for our community while keeping our non-profit stable and part of the arts and cultural landscape of Birmingham and the region. It never gets old remembering this meaningful achievement.  Thank you!

Special Thanks!
Five Loaves / Urban Avenues for providing a great team of culinary-driven student volunteers to help make the Corks & Chefs experience seamless. Five Loaves is an Urban Avenues venture designed to unite disconnected communities by inspiring people through food. This team of young adults is passionate about expanding their perspective and forming bonds with their Birmingham neighbors they may not ordinarily meet. Together, they learn valuable culinary and leadership techniques that equip them for success hosting community-bridging events and beyond.
