Outdoor Events on the Riverfront
Marquis Latimer + Halback, Inc. was invited to lead a team in the master planning and design this new outdoor performing venue. The team created a vision for a new amphitheater and festival park that reconnects the historic downtown with the new riverwalk. Using the backdrop of the Black Warrior River and one of the nation’s longest wooden trestle railroad bridges, the amphitheater provides fixed and grass seating for 8,000. This flexibility allows for a variety of performances ranging from concerts and theatre to pep rallies for the nearby University of Alabama.
