4 Events Not to Miss in Homewood in April + One in May

Spring is here and so are spring events. Here’s our roundup of what to do close to home this month.

1. 9th Annual Cornhole Classic

Saturday, April 10
The Bell Center

Join in on a round robin format with a playoffs tournament that will keep your cornhole skills intact during the tailgating off-season. Plus, you can enjoy food, music and more while benefitting The Bell Center for Early Prevention programs too. The event will comply with all state and local guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Learn more at thebellcenter.org.

2. Cornapalooza

Sunday, April 18 | 1-5 p.m.
Pizzeria GM

It’s only fitting that the Homewood Athletic Foundation would hold an athletic competition as a fundraiser. Cornhole is a sport, right? And all funds raised go toward the Homewood Athletic Foundation projects. Find more information at homewoodaf.org/events/.

3. Red Shoe Run: Rockin’ 5K 2021

Saturday, April 24
Downtown Homewood

Are you ready to rock? Time to turn up your favorite song and lace up your running shoes for this annual run benefitting Ronald McDonald House Charities of Alabama. You can choose from two participation options this year: a socially-distanced start line for the in-person 5K and 1 mile runs or a virtual option to rock the streets wherever you are. And as always, they will have a Snoozer option for those who simply wish to fundraise and get their T-shirt! Sign up at redshoerun-bham.org.

4. Homewood Grown

Friday, April 30
Patriot Park

It’s time to celebrate all things Homewood, particularly our teachers and administrators.  The outdoor socially distanced event benefitting the Homewood City Schools Foundation will feature dinner by The Happy Catering Company in Patriot Park and Alabama Supreme Court Justice Jay Mitchell—who is a Homewood High School alum and dad to four current Homewood students—as the keynote speaker.  The event is currently full, but you can find more information on it and how to get on the waiting list at homewoodcityschoolsfoundation.com.
