Moss Rock Festival November 7 & 8

Moss Rock Festival's 10th Anniversary

Serving on the Board of Directors for my 5th year, I'm proud that this festival continues to be one of the community's favorite fall events.  The Moss Rock Festival is unique in its focus on the combination of nature, eco ideas, art & design.              - Rob McDonald

Festival Dates & Times:

Saturday, November 7th / 10:00am – 5:00pm
Sunday, November 8th/ 10:00am – 4:00pm

The first weekend in November The Preserve in Hoover will be a regional focus for art, design & environmental lovers everywhere as the 10th Annual Moss Rock Festival kicks off.

The one-of-a-kind outdoor fall festival, which welcomed 15,000 visitors to The Preserve in Hoover, Alabama in 2014, will take place November 7th and 8th, 2015.

Come enjoy artists inspired by nature, our eco district partners featuring green living ideas, products, services and organizations, live music, engaging constructions and installations, The Sweetery, The Beer Garden, WonderKid studios, hiking, biking, geocaching,  fuel-efficient car exhibitions, a café, and the great outdoors.

We guarantee it will be a weekend where discoveries are the norm! Grab friends and family and get outside to explore nature at this premier eco-creative festival in Alabama.

The festival is free. Visitors must Park & Ride to the festival from The Hoover Metropolitan Stadium. The shuttles are frequent, free, and easy to use. After a quick glimpse at The Preserve neighborhood, the shuttle will drop you at the festival’s front steps. 


The Beer Garden Craft Beer Tasting Event

My particular focus is to help produce a craft beer tasting event as unique as the Moss Rock Festival itself.  To do that, we partner with Alabama breweries and local experts in craft brewing to bring an excellent sampling of over 30 selections of the excellent beer produced in our state, including several casks of special beers created specifically for our event.  Additionally, we have another dozen or so brews from outside Alabama to sample.  Paired with all this delicious beer, you'll be able to sample appetizers from local restaurants, meat, cheeses or chips.  If you enjoy craft beer, you absolutely do not want to miss this event, now an annual favorite of the local beer culture.  Buy Tickets
