2nd Weekend Logo

As the city that was Born to Celebrate, we're giving you another reason to kick up your heels during 2nd Weekends in Mobile. Your weekend will start with LoDa ArtWalk where you'll join the locals to enjoy the latest in local art, music, food and culture. On Saturday, we'll be at Cooper Riverside Park for Saturdays at The Coop featuring live music, vendors, food trucks and more! You might be thinking ... what else? Our 300 year-old city has so much to see and explore; check out our trip planning inspiration for more ideas!

  •  Every second weekend of the month, on Friday from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m., downtown Mobile comes alive during ArtWalk! This is the perfect event to get friends together, take the family out or go for an evening stroll and join folks to enjoy the latest in local art, music, food and culture. Grab a drink or beignet and browse local galleries, public spaces and pop-up markets. ArtWalk celebrates Mobile's diversity; visitors will find both the contemporary and traditional, from crafts to furnishings, while enjoying all the flavors of Mobile, grab a table and take in the scene or a bite to go from one of the food trucks and be part of the scene. The community-wide art show is a perfect way to "do as the locals do"  while getting a taste, ear- and eye-full of all things funky and charming that our coastal city has to offer. The event takes place through a partnership between the Mobile Arts Council and the City of Mobile Special Events department.

  • This is a Monthly Concert Series that takes place at Cooper Riverside Park! Live music, local vendors, food trucks. Bring your own snacks, coolers, chairs and blankets to celebrate and enjoy the night with the Mobile Parks and Recreation Department. Second Saturday of the month, 7:00 - 10:00 PM.
