What's Happening in Birmingham This May
From Art Birmingham, to the Celebrate Birmingham parade, to the Village Fair, you'll be busy — not bored — this month.
May, along with hopefully some warmer temperatures, is here. And with everything from the Village Fair to the Celebrate Birmingham parade, May is a big month in Birmingham.
Patch will keep you up to date with what's going on every week, but we've got your monthly look ahead to keep as a handy reference. The thing is, we know we've missed some events — some of which haven't been announced yet — so leave us a comment and let us know what else is going on this month. Our goal is to keep you informed.
