The Ensley Merchants Association, Ensley Alive, and REV Birmingham joined forces to end the lunchtime void in Downtown Ensley. Ensley Eats, a lunchtime food truck event held May 3rd, was a huge success! Much gratitude to Rom and the crew with Cantina on Wheels, David of Magic City Sweet Ice, and KISS 98.7 who helped create the kind of vibrancy that Ensley wants to see more of in the future. Ensley Merchants banded together to accomplish the first of several goals for the year: to create an event that allows Birmingham to see Ensley in a new light. Thank you to all those who came out, we hope you had great time, and we’re already planning the next event! Check out the Ensley Eats event page for details.
TODAY IS THE DAY! REV Birmingham is celebrating 10 years of creating vibrant commercial districts in the City of Birmingham. Today is all about celebrating the past decade of success and all that we have accomplished. It all started ten years ago when two organizations – Operation New Birmingham and Main Street Birmingham – merged to create the one and only REV Birmingham. We have covered so much ground since then, from historic building rehab consulting all the way to our refresh of 20th Street North – and we are looking forward to seeing what the future holds for us here at REV.
REV is turning TEN! Our birthday is swiftly approaching (it’s on November 15th in case you want to give us a happy birthday shoutout!) and we are spending the week leading up to it reflecting on the past 10 years. We have accomplished so much in just a decade, and we can’t wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us. But for now, let’s take a trip down memory lane and look back at some of our favorite projects.
From Austin, Texas to New Orleans, Louisiana, learn why this family choose to move into the city center of Birmingham. We are interviewing people from all around the city and learning why they chose to move into Birmingham.
