Baldwin County Strawberry Festival. What would spring be without fresh strawberries? On April 11th, you’ll find them at the Baldwin County Strawberry Festival. Now in it’s 28th year, the Strawberry Festival benefits two very special organizations: Loxley Elementary School and the ARC of Baldwin County, which helps those with mental handicaps. The Strawberry Festival is consistently recognized as one of the best festivals in the area, with over 180 different artists and vendors proudly exhibiting their work. Plus, there will be a carnival, a vintage car show, rides for the kids, and live music featuring the fabulous band Mustang Sally. Naturally, there will be strawberries galore, and our Good To Go food truck will be there serving some of our own special recipes. Come join u?s on April 11th!

Rivals for Wishes. Foes for a Year, Friends for a Night. On April 16th, at Region’s Field in Birmingham, we are proud to support Make-AWish Alabama’s premiere event. For the first time ever, your favorite sports celebrities will join together in an Iron Bowl event filled with entertainment and fun! The event will feature University of Alabama and Auburn University athletic greats, an upscale tailgate party, silent and live auctions, a fun, interactive Football Feud game show featuring special guests, live music, and much more. Every dollar raised by this event will be allocated to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions to fight harder against their illnesses. Visit us at the event and help Make-A-Wish come true!

Wetumpka Crater Festival. Did you know that millions of years ago, a crater slammed into the earth just outside Wetumpka? Well, no one did until very recently! So we figured, let’s celebrate! On April 18th, we’ll be presenting the 3rd Annual Crater Festival in Wetumpka. As the saying goes, “everything’s greater in the Crater”, so be sure to hit us up at the Craterfest! There will be music, live entertainment, all kinds of concessions and plenty of arts and crafts, all in the name of family fun. Check out all the fun now!?

Toadlick Music Festival. Wind Creek Hospitality is extremely excited to present the Toadlick Music Festival in Dothan, Alabama. This three day event, from April 23rd through the 25th, is bringing some of the best and brightest musicians to the area, including Alabama, Hank Williams Jr., Lee Brice, Bret Michaels and STYX, along with many others. Attendance in previous years has averaged around 120,000 people - it’s Woodstock, Alabama-style! Grab your tickets, bring a tent or a camper, and make your way down to Dothans’ National Peanut Festival Fairgrounds. We’ll see you there! ?

Pensacola Crawfish Festival. One of the quickest ways to shake off the winter blues is some spicy bayou food and music! So, on May 1st through the 3rd, we’re cruising down to Pensacola for the Crawfish Festival - the largest Crawfish boil in all of Florida! Imagine 16,000 pounds of crawfish - that’s eight tons! - being served up just about any way you can imagine. If you can’t stand the idea of squeezing the head off a crawfish, there will be plenty of other great food, live music, and a kids’ area with the now-famous “NASCRAW” crawfish race. Check it out now!

Fairhope Rotary’s International Steak Championship. If strawberries or crawfish won’t bring you out, maybe some steak will. On Friday, May 8th, come visit us at the Coolest Street Party in the Known Universe! Starting with the all-you-can eat rib eye steak dinner to a live performance by the Molly Ringwalds to dancing in the streets, it promises to be more fun than is legal north of the Mason-Dixon line! And you can rest easy knowing that the money we raise goes to help deliver clean water to those in need, and to eradicating polio. Click here to learn more.
