Montgomery Announces Fall News and Events

MONTGOMERY, Ala., October 15, 2018 – Montgomery is moving full speed ahead into the fall season with new openings and a variety of cultural events. Known for its Southern hospitality and its revitalized downtown, this riverfront capital city was the birthplace of the Civil Rights Movement and has established itself as a landmark Deep South destination. With a burgeoning arts scene centered around the Blount Cultural Park and an array of attractions in its historic downtown and Old Cloverdale neighborhoods, Montgomery welcomes visitors and locals alike to enjoy some of its newest developments.

“This time of year is perfect for visitors to spend time in our destination with cooler temperatures and a host of fun events,” shares Vice President of Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce Dawn Hathcock. “We know that many people come to Montgomery to experience our incredible Civil Rights history and visit the new Equal Justice Memorial and Legacy Museum, but there is so much more to see and do. Our new sculpture garden is truly a gamechanger for the local arts scene and the Alabama Shakespeare Festival’s new season is shaping up to be the best yet.”
