The Alabama Mountain Games, a four-day event billed as the Southeast’s premiere annual extreme outdoor sports competition and live music festival, will be held this weekend, Thursday, March 17 through Sunday, March 20.
While the event features competitions in white water kayaking, stand up paddle boarding, disc golf, mountain biking, fishing and rock climbing, the focus is on promoting both environmental and recreational conservation across the state through charitable contributions. All proceeds from the event will go to benefit the Brad Hind Land Trust, an organization with a mission to acquire, preserve and protect land in and around North Alabama.
There will also be live music coupled with fun-filled family activities for all to enjoy. The base camp for the event is located at Boogie Bottoms in Cleveland, Alabama, where competitors and spectators will gather to enjoy the competitions, music, food and family activities.
“Come for the day or pack a tent and stay the weekend,” Tracy Smith, event organizer, said in a press release promoting the event. “This is a great option for a ‘staycation’ during spring break.”
The band line up all weekend includes One Eyed Mary and Rollin’ in the Hay. Additional entertainment will be available for everyone to enjoy including jousting, moon bounce, corn toss, dry-land boat and sled races, throw rope contest, bucket wars, horseshoes, basketball, and more..
Day passes are $15. Weekend passes are $25 (includes camping fee).
