The Alabama Bicentennial Commission of Lee County is pleased to announce the 18th annual Auburn CityFest: Native Alabama as an upcoming bicentennial endorsed event.
Auburn CityFest, sponsored by MAX with media sponsor OA News, is Auburn’s largest, FREE outdoor arts and crafts festival, offering over 100 arts, crafts, food and non-profit vendors for event patrons to peruse, a children’s area and entertainment stage (sponsored by ALFA Insurance), live music and much more! Back for its 18th year, Auburn CityFest is going back to its roots this year with the theme Native Alabama on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Kiesel Park.
In addition to its customary variety of activities and vendors, the festival will feature musical performances by Dogwood Lung, a favorite among Auburn University students, who will captivate festival goers with their unique blending of original folk and dreampop music, and headliner The Tony Brook Band. Fresh off a tour in the United Kingdom, The Tony Brook Band brings their Muscle Shoals sound to every performance, including performances at storied venues, like the Waverly 280 Boogie, and with musical legends like Lucinda Williams and the Waylon Jennings Band.
Keeping with the theme, Auburn CityFest will also honor the traditions and rich history of Alabama with headlining entertainment – the Medicine Tail Singers. Featuring members from many Southeastern Native American tribal backgrounds, the Medicine Tail Singers are a travelling drum group that performs various Native American dances and songs across the Southeastern United States.
Auburn CityFest is Auburn’s largest, FREE outdoor festival and will be held rain or shine on April 28 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. at Kiesel Park.
