Arts and Entertainment

The Brewton Arts Council takes great pride in delivering art and culture to Brewton’s residents. Each year, this civic organization solicits playgroups, theater and musical acts from New York and beyond to entertain residents at our own Jefferson Davis Community College’s Woodfin Patterson Auditorium. Local dance and theater instructors organize annual recitals featuring local children and teens performing jazz numbers, ballet and tap, baton, gymnastics as well as dramatic, comedic and musical theater. The community college also houses a wonderful museum in which local residents have contributed artifacts and items that have been retrieved from all over Escambia County. The museum stores and displays these items for all residents and visitors to view and discover our collective history.The annual Alabama Blueberry Festival is held on the third Saturday in June. Many Brewton residents and thousands of visitors travel from all over the Southeast to enjoy the locally made blueberry treats and live entertainment. Vendors present their handmade arts and crafts, and visitors can view antique automobiles at the car show. Children are also amused and entertained by the mini-train, face painting, pony rides, petting zoo, inflatables, water slides and bungee jump.

Blueberry Drop downtown

The city of Brewton hosts the annual Blueberry Drop downtown in Burnt Corn Creek Park every New Year’s Eve to celebrate this festive holiday. Music, dancing and fireworks are all part of the celebration culminating in the lowering of a blueberry cluster as the seconds count down to midnight. New York’s celebration is no rival for this favorite tradition for local residents.

Fourth of July

The Fourth of July celebration is hosted by the city of East Brewton. Entertainment, card games, duck races as well as food are provided for revelers, and the day is capped off with a wonderful fireworks display.

Throughout the year there are other local events and celebrations such as the annual Christmas Parade, Earth Day and Relay for Life where everyone is invited outdoors for fun and activity. Please call the Chamber of Commerce for a list of these entertainment opportunities.
