About MCAC’s FAB 41st year

Join us at Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark as we celebrate MCAC’s 41st year April 26-28. Take in the Festival’s annual spring infusion of sights, sounds, tastes, and aromas at this iconic backdrop central to Birmingham’s skyline. We look forward with much anticipation to fusing the show’s vibrant contemporary arts with this former master of industry.

2024 will spotlight 150 juried, fine artists from the state, region, and around the country alongside Corks & Chefs: A Taste of Birmingham (27th year!), Imagination Festival art workshops for kids, Collectors Classroom demos, live music and dance performances, a special exhibition spotlighting the work of our Featured Artist Bryce Speed, art/sculpture installations, cultural partners, Festival Café with food trucks and other favorites, and relaxing in the open air at MCAC’s new Umbrella Lounges.

Find art, support local arts & culture, and connect with community the last full weekend in April at this annual spring arts tradition in Birmingham.

Create. Inspire. Educate. Collect.
