Each September on the weekend following Labor Day, Birmingham’s historic loft district transforms into the area’s liveliest arts scene. The highly anticipated event is unique among the city’s festivals, with artists exhibiting in and around participating businesses, plus it has become a magnet for new and emerging artists. Free to the public, Artwalk draws more than 10,000 people downtown each year.
