In 2021, the spring art festival will be moving from its annual home in downtown’s Linn Park to another distinctive local jewel, Birmingham’s Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark. Take in the Festival’s sights, sounds, tastes, and aromas at this storied, rustic, industrial backdrop central to our city’s skyline.

We look forward with much anticipation to fusing the show’s vibrant contemporary arts with this former master of industry, plus achieving many of the festival’s socially-distanced, public health protocols planned for a safe weekend for all.

The 38th year of the festival will spotlight 150 juried, fine artists from the region and around the country alongside Corks & Chefs: A Taste of Birmingham (Reserved Edition – get tickets!), Imagination Festival art workshops for kids, live dance and music performances on stage, a special exhibition, festival cafe, lounging in the open air, and more. We hope you’ll join us the last full weekend in April at this annual Birmingham spring arts tradition. Create. Inspire. Educate. Collect.
