June is jam-packed with fun events to add to your business or blog's content calendar.
Does work have you stuck at your desk? Are you dreaming of a carefree summer vacation in an exotic locale? Even if it’s not quite time for you to hit the road for an extended period, there’s no reason why you can’t put a super summer stay-cation right here in Birmingham on your calendar — or incorporate some fun in your own cubicle/office. If you’re looking for content to jazz up your blog or social media plan this month, look no further. Beat the heat (and the blog writer’s blues) with these cool events.
Eat, Drink and Be (Responsibly) Merry
What’s better than pizza and beer? Festivals dedicated to them! Enjoy both at SliceFest on June 3 and the Magic City Caribbean Food and Music Festival (June 10). Two tidbits you may not know: SliceFest has donated over $30,000 to nonprofits in the past six years. And the Central Alabama Caribbean American Organization (CACAO) hosts the Caribbean food and music festival, which is free, family friendly, and will feature a parade, dancing and even a “limbo artiste!”
See and Be Scene
Birmingham’s cultural scene heats up during the summer months with two signature events. The Birmingham Museum of Art’s popular Art on the Rocks series returns June 23. Makers, artists, movers and shakers will enjoy everything from contortionists, Bollywood and breakdancing this season. If you need a little bit of Mozart, Verdi or Bizet in your life, pack a lawn chair and snacks for the Alabama Symphony Orchestra’s free (!) Symphony in the Summer program at Railroad Park (June 5-7).
Why not bring the fun to your office by celebrating one of several “silly” holidays? Doughnut Day, and Take Your Dog to Work Day are two we enjoy year-round. And wouldn’t it be a better world if every day were Say Something Nice Day?
