Vote Birmingham Tastiest Town!

Do you like to eat? We do! Have you ever taken the time to stop and really think about all of the fantastic eateries we have in this city? Southern Living has!

In addition to a full roster of dining destinations, Birmingham’s community calendar is packed with annual food events.  For 37 years, the Greek Food Festival has attracted growing crowds to enjoy food favorites such as souvlakia, gyros and baklava.  Up to 30,000 people pack into Birmingham’s Holy Trinity-Holy Cross Greek Orthodox Cathedral for the three-day event.  Also worth noting is the Schaeffer Eye Center Crawfish Boil, which serves up 25,000 pounds of boiled crawfish to music lovers each summer.

“This is a huge opportunity to celebrate Birmingham’s culinary successes,” said James H. Smither, president of the Greater Birmingham Convention & Visitors Bureau.  “We want to encourage the community to vote, and show those other Southern cities why Birmingham should be at the top of this list.”
