Looking for an opportunity to explore Birmingham culture? Seek no more. Right around the corner is Birmingham Artwalk 2013, a vivacious, open-air arts festival located on the streets of downtown Birmingham, which is open to the public at an affordable price–it’s free.
Artwalk will begin Friday, September 6th from 5 PM–10 PM and last through Saturday, September 7th from Noon–6 PM, and will be located on Morris Avenue, 1st and 2nd Avenues North, and between 22nd and 25th Streets North.
