Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7 are proving to be a magical weekend in Pepper Place (more magical than usual, that is). This weekend marks the final days of Dia de los Muertos, Eat in the Streets and the inaugural lighting of the lights on 29th Street.

Dia de los Muertos

November 1 – 7th

While Dia de Los Muertos is hitting pause on its normal celebrations, you can still honor the heart of the festival by visiting their altar site. These installations are free to the community and pay homage to the lives of those that came before and those that are still with us. Each night there will be a memorial roll call, nightly food vendor and of course, the beautiful altars.

The gates are open each night from 5 to 9pm with limited capacity.

Eat in the Streets

In partnership with the City of Birmingham, Pepper Place is closing down 29th Street to offer a socially-distant dining experience. Simply call & place an order at your favorite Pepper Place restaurant, pick it up and head to 29th Street.

Here’s the schedule for Friday, November 6 and Saturday, November 7:

The Lighting of 29th Street

In addition to these two events, Pepper Place will also be lighting 29th Street for the first time on Friday, November 6th! After working closely with the Mayor’s Office & the City of Birmingham, 29th Street will be strung with lights that carry from the Dr Pepper Building to the Martin Biscuit Building.

Join us as we turn on these lights for the first time on Friday, November 6 at 5pm. City Officials will be there as we add this special touch to 29th Street.

Acting with Safety

In an effort to keep everyone safe during these exciting events we ask that you practice social distancing, wear a face covering and respect social distancing guidelines.
