That’s right; this year’s festival would be held on September 1 & 2. There has been a lot of chatter wondering if the event would be held this year. A resolution approving a contract with the Birmingham African American Arts and Heritage Foundation is included as a consent item on this morning’s City Council agenda (page 23, Item 9). If approved, the $35,000 contract would call for the Foundation to “produce and present the 2007 Southern Heritage Festival.”

There is no confirmation of an event location or lineup, though last year’s festival was held on the site of the Railroad Reservation Park in downtown Birmingham.
