While summertime in Downtown Huntsville is filled with many of the year’s signature events, that doesn’t mean late Winter and early Spring don’t have their fair share of fantastic gatherings in our city center.
In fact, one of the big ones takes place this Saturday as Von Brewski invades the Von Braun Center. This indoor craft beer festival offers over 170 beers to sample inside the VBC’s South Hall where, no matter the weather outside, it’s always 70 degrees and sunny at Von Brewski. For a bit of extra fun, the Downtown Huntsville Craft Beer Trail will be sponsoring the event wristbands and will feature free Trail Cards and free local brewery swag at our table at the event. Plus, keep a look on the Craft Beer Trail’s Facebook page this week for ticket giveaways!
Just a couple weeks later, Downtown Huntsville will be filled with the sights and sounds of Valentine’s Day (have you seen some of these great window displays already up?) We’ll have all the details in a special edition of our free e-newsletter, The Downtown Explorer, (sign up here). Needless to say, there will be romantic dining options, casual Valentine’s gatherings, special live music (like this concert at Tangled String Studios) and even an Anti-Valentine’s Day party at Green Bus Brewing. One great way to follow the Valentine’s happenings is via the #iHeartHsv Valentine’s videos which you can follow here. So, whether you’re solo, with a group of friends or sharing the evening with that special person in your life, Downtown Huntsville is the best destination for Valentine’s fun anywhere in Huntsville!
The seasonal fun continues with Mardi Gras festivities on March 2nd in Downtown Huntsville. The popular Grand Parade returns including the “tail end” of the parade featuring the Krewe of Barkus. The parade fun continues on March 16th with the 42nd Annual Ellen McAnelly Memorial St. Patrick's Day Parade winding through Downtown. The big green day kicks off with Kegs & Eggs at both Jefferson Street Pub and Keegan’s Public House and wraps up with a St. Patrick’s Day party at Butler Green in the middle of all the Campus 805 fun.
As you can see, February and March make for great months of fun in Downtown Huntsville. It’s so hard to pick which one to attend so we recommend that you make your life easier and just enjoy them all!
