Bald Eagle Bash

Mark your calendars — 12th annual Bald Eagle Bash – April 30, 2022!

Are you ready for the Party for Preservation?” What better way to shake off the winter months and a very long year than watching the sunset over Weeks Bay while enjoying fresh local seafood and listening to awesome local music for a great cause? The 12th annual Bald Eagle Bash, set for April 30 from 4-7 p.m., at the Tonsmeire Weeks Bay Resource Center, is South Alabama Land Trust’s (SALT) largest event, raising funds to restore vulnerable coastline, protect wildlife and educate folks about how they can help ensure we have clean water.

This “taste of Weeks Bay” brings more than a dozen area restaurants together to create dishes based on delicious Gulf shrimp. From fried shrimp, to stuffed shrimp, to shrimp and grits, shrimp ceviche, and jalapeno shrimp sliders, each chef prepares a signature dish that is sure to delight all participants. Several restaurants will serve delectable desserts!

This year, for the first time, we welcome TWO musical acts – Ross Newell and Paw Paw’s Medicine Cabinet!

Local brewers Fairhope Brewing Company and Braided River Brewing Company will be pouring their awesome selections of craft beer again.

“The Bald Eagle Bash is a great family-friendly event that showcases local seafood and local musical talent in a setting that cannot be beat.” Ellis Allen, South Alabama Land Trust Board Chairman said. “Many attendees come by boat and families fish off the pier while everybody enjoys the food, the music and the sunset.”
