Events this Weekend in Tuscaloosa

The One and Only Tuscaloosa is packed with excitement this weekend! This weekend Tuscaloosa is hosting the Alabama High School Athletic Association Regional Softball Qualifier! High Schools from across the region will be competing for a chance to play in the state tournament! Schools from 1A all the way to 7A will be in Tuscaloosa playing their tournament games. Head out to Bowers Park to get in on all of the action!

If you’re more interested in music than sports, we have that too! Tarred & Feathered will be playing at Southern Ale House this Thursday! You can join the band on the patio as they play a variety of songs through the decades with their own flair and three-part harmony! With a nice mix of guitars, banjos, and percussion, it’s a perfect recipe for a good time.

The music continues into Friday! As expected, Live at the Plaza continues this week. This week Government Plaza will be filled with the sounds of Campbell Station! This trip has created a country/rock fusion that is truly special. Each week for the event, downtown is transformed into an entertainment center. Places nearby like Alcove and Monarch will be serving up cold beverages and even university drive establishments like Cravings and Black Warrior Brewing will be joining in on the fun! Best of all, the event is completely free and perfect for the whole family!

Friday is sure to be a day remembered by many because it will be the day that Deontay Wilder becomes inducted into the Alabama Boxing Hall of Fame. Because this is a brand new hall of fame, Heavyweight Champion of the World Deontay Wilder will be in the very first entry class for the establishment. The induction will be part of a live professional fight card where he, along with others, will receive an official induction trophy!

On Saturday morning you can swing by the Tuscaloosa River Market for the Farmer’s Market! Vendors set up ripe red tomatoes and famous Chilton County peaches. Musicians sit propped up against the door, playing guitars as you walk in, and local Food Trucks, bakers, artists, and craftsmen gather here to sell their gourmet grub, fresh-baked yeast rolls, homemade jams and jellies and hand-carved cutting boards.

We have tons more going on so check out our great upcoming events, and follow us on our social media pages (@visittuscaloosa) for more announcements and events. Tell your friends and we can’t wait to see you around the One and Only Tuscaloosa!
