BayFest offers continuous music for every taste, including country, classic rock, alternative, pop, jazz, R&B, rap, gospel, modern rock and more. One of the festival’s stages, the Launching Pad, is specifically designed to spotlight local and regional talent and showcase acts who aspire for musical greatness. The event also includes a family activity area that has garnered rave reviews in and of itself. All of this is offered at a price that is less that what most individual concerts cost!
BayFest has been honored by the Alabama Tourism Department as the Alabama Event of the Year (2009) and has been a Southeast Tourism Society Top 20 Event for multiple years. The festival has also been named event of the year by the Mobile Press-Register, Mobile Bay Monthly and Lagniappe.
