Events in Tuscaloosa on Alabama’s First Gameday Weekend


Alabama football is back in Tuscaloosa! The Crimson Tide is 1-0 after absolutely destroying Louisville behind an impressive performance from dynamic signal-caller Tua Tagovailoa. Tuscaloosa will be electric this weekend as Tua gets his first start, and we have a ton of great events to fill up your weekend before and after the 2:30 game on Saturday against Arkansas State.

Kentuck Art Night 🖼

Just over the river from downtown Tuscaloosa rests Kentuck Art Center, the centerpiece of the local art community. One the first Thursday of each month they host a quaint little shindig to help you relax and explore their unique scene. They have live music, light hors-d’oeuvres and a chance to interact with a local artist and even purchase some of their beautiful art. Art night runs from 5-8, but it will be the best three hours of your month, guaranteed. Check out their Facebook event to share this information with your friends!

First Friday Art Walk 🎨

The first Friday of the month is a special evening in downtown Tuscaloosa. Local art galleries open their doors late and invite the public in for a night of fun and exploration. With downtown being an entertainment district on Friday evenings, you can now grab your favorite drink from a local bar or restaurant and dig the local art scene. Galleries on your tour include Harrison Galleries, the Dinah Washington Cultural Arts Center, and local artist Caleb O’Connor’s studio. For more information and hours visit

St. Paul and the Broken Bones at DCMH 🎶

St. Paul and the Broken Bones are back in Tuscaloosa. The Alabama natives will have Druid City Music Hall rocking on Friday night to celebrate the release of their new Album, titled Young Sick Camilla. The album drops Friday evening, so be there to experience something new and exciting from one of Alabama’s best local groups. Visit for ticket info.

The Orange Constant at Green Bar 🎸

If you recognize the name “Orange Constant” then you may remember this southern jam band from Tuscaloosa’s Live at the Plaza series earlier this year. This time they will perform at the more intimate venue Green Bar. This venue has hosted great acts such as the Alabama Shakes and St. Paul and the Broken Bones so you know you will experience a quality act. The show begins at 10pm, so don’t miss out on some great live music.

Alabama Women’s Soccer vs. Troy ⚽️

The Alabama Women’s Soccer team has heated up and is currently on a three-game winning streak right now. Look for them to carry that momentum into Sunday’s game vs. the in-state Troy Trojans. The ladies tend to win at home, so continue watching Alabama roll over opponents after your gameday Saturday. Visit for more info.
