Some big name entertainment is making its way to downtown Albertville in August when the annual Main Street Music Festival arrives in town for two days of free family fun. The event brings up-and-coming and nationally recognized musicians to the north Alabama community, and in addition to great music, festivalgoers are entertained with a variety of activities. Headlining the 2016 event was ACM and CMA award winning recording artist Sara Evans and in 2017 it was Brett Michaels.
On Friday, live music gets the crowd going beginning at 5 p.m. The music continues on Saturday beginning at 11 a.m.
From 4 to 7 p.m. on Friday and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, children can cool off in the inflatable water park. Additional activities throughout the weekend include rolling video games, an art exhibit and sale, story time, a giant coloring wall, cornhole and shopping among the many arts and crafts vendors along with plenty of food concessions.
