Birmingham, Ala. – Saturday, April 21, 2pm to sundown, Earthbound headlines Earthbound’s Earthfest, their annual outdoor concert at Avondale Brewery (21 41st St S, Birmingham, AL 35222). The event celebrates Earth Day and promotes Black Warrior Riverkeeper, a nonprofit clean water advocacy organization protecting the Black Warrior River basin. That watershed includes parts of 17 Alabama counties and provides approximately half of Birmingham’s drinking water plus all of the water for Tuscaloosa and many other cities.

The family friendly concert is open to pets and humans of all ages, although guests under 21 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. Suggested $5 donations at the door – as well as proceeds from merchandise, art, beer, Red Mountain Crawfish and Smokey Sam’s BBQ – support Black Warrior Riverkeeper.

The event’s top sponsors this year are Skates 280 and Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc. followed by MacLellan, Inc., their award winning water treatment partner.

“Mercedes-Benz U.S. International, Inc. has been building vehicles in Alabama for 21 years and we’re proud to support Black Warrior Riverkeeper and Earthbound’s Earthfest,” said Jason Hoff, President and CEO of Mercedes-Benz U.S. International. “We made a promise to protect our environment – a promise to our Team Members, our customers and our neighbors.”

“Earthbound’s Earthfest is one of my favorite events every year,” said Taylor Lander, General Manager of Avondale Brewing Company. “Supporting Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s clean water advocacy helps continue to brew high quality beers here in the Black Warrior watershed.”

“If you like live music, craft beer, great food, local artists, outdoor fellowship, or clean water, Earthbound’s Earthfest is for you,” added Charles Scribner, Executive Director of Black Warrior Riverkeeper.
