Birmingham Heritage Festival canceled this year

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - There will be no Birmingham Heritage Music Festival this year. According to the event's website, organizers say a number of things led to their decision to cancel this year's festival.

A major factor was the 165-thousand dollars needed up front for police and fire protection. Organizers say they do not have the money.

If you bought a ticket, you can get a refund at the place where you purchased it.
