The Druid City Arts Festival draws huge crowds to Government Plaza in downtown Tuscaloosa each spring. DCAF, presented by Tuscaloosa Tourism & Sports and Cadence Bank, showcases local and regional art, music, and culture. This is an all-ages, free festival. The Festival will be held on Saturday, April 7, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

This is the 9th annual DCAF, and each year, the crowds grow larger, as well as the artists – both musical and visual. For years now, this festival has been a premiere springtime event in town, offering up not just art, but music, food, and more.

The best part? The Druid City Arts Festival is free. Food vendors will be on site, but there is no charge for admission and all the entertainment won’t cost a dime. Some downtown Tuscaloosa restaurants will also be offering discounts on the day of the Festival. For families, a children’s area is also planned, with age-appropriate activities.

Performing artists this year include members of The Alabama Blues Project, Matt Jones, Drum Nation, and The Bonaires. Additionally, members of The Actor’s Charitable Theatre and the Tuscaloosa Children’s Theatre will perform.

The Druid City Arts Festival’s goal is to provide a quality arts festival, which strengthens Tuscaloosa as a destination market for the arts circuit, while also educating, engaging and inspiring both youth and adults about the arts and humanities within the Tuscaloosa community.

The Druid City Arts Festival began as a vision that several Creative Campus freshman students at the University of Alabama had, which was to create a festival that promoted the appreciation of the arts, culture and community in Tuscaloosa. Turning their dream in to a reality, the first DCAF took place in 2010 and has continued since then.
