Berman Museum in Anniston has a special exhibit of Gee’s Bend quilts now through January 3, 2010 (it just opened October 3rd)
21st Annual Native American Festival in Moundville
Saturday is the last day of Oktoberfest in Cullman (Cullman is dry, so Oktoberfest = no beer! I grew up in Cullman so that seems totally normal…)
The Jule Collins Smith Museum of Fine Art in Auburn is celebrating its sixth anniversary this weekend with an Elvis theme, and the really special part of that is the exhibit they have through January 9, 2010 of Joni Mabe’s Elvis art. You *have* to know Joni Mabe. She is the Queen of the King.
Saturday 9a – 5p and Sunday 1p – 5p is Pilgrimage in Eutaw, Alabama.
Alabama National Fair in Montgomery – I’m not a fair rides person at all, but this has the biggest selection of individual entries for crafts, baked goods, etc. from people all over the state.
Exhibit through October 24 at Bare Hands Gallery in B’ham of Pat Snow’s artwork, “Would You Like Me Better If I Made You A Pretty Picture?”:
