Taste of Five Points is back by popular demand!
Vulcan Park and Museum and the Five Points Alliance are working together to host the second annual “Taste of Five Points” presented by Spire – a celebration of the neighborhood’s 131st anniversary. Attendees will experience all the elements that exemplify the best of Five Points South, from culinary hot-spots to trendy retail to lively entertainment options.
Over 26 merchants – including retail, restaurants and churches from Five Points South – will set up at Vulcan Park beginning at 5:30 p.m. on May 8 to spotlight the goods and services they have available to their community.
“The gathering at Vulcan Park overlooking all of Southside (last year) was like a reunion of old friends mixed with a diverse group of locals who are drawn to the character and slightly bohemian nature of our beloved community. Great food and drink and a chance to meet some more of our neighbors—a good time to exchange ideas and ways we can make Five Points an even better place to work, live and celebrate life,” said Chef Frank Stitt of Highlands Bar and Grill.

One of the most legendary and storied neighborhoods of Birmingham is Woodlawn. It is a community, anchored by one of the great public high schools of Birmingham, that has produced many citizens who contributed to the life of our city and has had an impact beyond the neighborhood itself. In a short post like this true justice cannot be done to the rich heritage and legacy of Woodlawn. However, we hope that this narrative brings together many of the diverse threads that make up the fabric of the community’s historic arc in a concise piece.
This month’s vendor spotlight highlights Easy Breezy, a local, low-waste shop founded by Brianna Deere. Dedicated to helping others reduce waste and providing inexpensive, non-toxic cleaning supplies, Brianna began selling to the public for the first time at the April 2023 Woodlawn Street Market.
