Football has returned to Tuscaloosa, and with it a ton of great events to give you a fun-filled weekend in the city of champions. We have live music, art events, musicals, and more! Get ready to enjoy a special weekend in Tuscaloosa!
Art Night at Kentuck
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 lasts from 5-8 on Thursday, but it will be the best three hours of your month, guaranteed. Check out their Facebook event to share this information with your friends! https://www.facebook.com/events/366189450947666/
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.

The Actor’s Charitable Theatre presents “Cats.”
“Jellicle Cats come out tonight, Jellicle Cats come one come all.” Join the Actor’s Charitable Theatre for their magical and moving production of Cats the Musical September 6-9 at The Bama Theatre. Based on T.S. Eliot’s whimsical collection of poems, Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, Andrew Lloyd Webber’s popular musical brings together a tribe of Jellicle Cats on a moonlit evening, who must make the “Jellicle choice” to decide which of them will ascend to the mysterious Heaviside Layer to be reborn. Featuring such celebrated standards as the haunting “Memory,” “Cats” was an international phenomenon and its original production is still the fourth-longest-running show on Broadway with a new revival that opened in summer 2016. You have plenty of opportunities to experience this musical over the weekend. This includes shows on Friday and Saturday, as well as two showings on Sunday.
