Eva Frontier Days

Tucked away off of Interstate 65 between Huntsville and Birmingham is the town of Eva that loves to hold a celebration featuring old-fashioned fun.  Eva Frontier Days attracts thousands of visitors to the community for a week-long celebration offering wholesome family-friendly entertainment where events include a greased pig chase, a frog jumping contest, a parade, antique tractors, a hayride, and much more.  

The weeklong celebration kicks off on Saturday with a bluegrass festival.  The popular hayride hits the streets on Tuesday beginning at the Eva Saddle Club Arena off of Frost Road north of Eva at 6:30 p.m. Cost is $1 per person and includes a free hotdog and drink.  Eva Baptist Church hosts a Community Hymn Book Singing on Thursday and the public is also invited to Music on the Square in downtown Eva Friday evening. 

The fun continues on Saturday beginning at 9 a.m. with a craft show, games and activities, and an Antique Tractor Show. At 10:30 a.m., the baking contest gets underway, followed by a parade at 11 a.m., live entertainment at 12:30 and 2:30 p.m., and a pig calling contest at 3 p.m.  The day wraps up at the ball fields with the frog jumping contest at 4 p.m. followed by the greased pig chase at 5 p.m.
