Attendees can shop for a variety of items including clothing, jewelry, home décor, art, gifts and more. Several restaurants will also be on hand to offer samples of their most popular entrees.


“We’re fortunate to have a wide variety of retailers and boutiques in our community, and we’d like to invite everyone to come by and see what West Alabama has to offer,” says Alicia Gregory, Special Events Coordinator, the Chamber.


Presented by Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports, Celebrate Local is a great way to learn more about what our local community has to offer as it encourages people to think local first.  “We are happy to see Celebrate Local return this year and to continue the partnership with this incredible event,” said Don Staley, TTS President and CEO.  “The event offers a unique opportunity to educate the community about our mission, while also spotlighting things to see and do.  Our organization is especially excited to showcase the Tuscaloosa Civil Rights Trail through this event this year.”
