Vulcan Park and Museum and the newly-formed Five Points Alliance are coming together to bring Birmingham a fantastic new culinary and cultural event! A Taste of Five Points, presented by Alagasco, will take place at Vulcan Park and Museum on Tuesday, May 16th from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.
This event will celebrate the neighborhood’s 130th anniversary and mark the end of the exhibit Patience, People, and the Plan: The Revitalization of Five Points South, currently on display in the Linn-Henley Gallery at Vulcan Park and Museum.

Clyde, the UPS Store, and Zydeco.
“The idea behind this event is to shed light on all that the Five Points South neighborhood has to offer, not just culinary,” said Morgan Berney Black, Director of Marketing & Public Relations at Vulcan Park and Museum. “Guests will get a taste of all of it and experience the best of landmark culinary hot-spots, trendy retail, and lively entertainment.”
At the event, a specialty Five Points cocktail will be revealed thanks to Dave’s Pub and Jose Cuervo Tradicional.
Advanced tickets are $30 for an individual and $50 for a couple. These are available for purchase at the Vulcan Park and Museum Website! At the gate, single tickets will be $35 and couple tickets will be $55. Each ticket holder will receive a coupon for a complimentary beer from Good People Brewing Company.
A portion of the proceeds will go to benefit the new master plan project underway by the Five Points Alliance.

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.
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.
