Schaeffer Eye Center confirmed that The Roots will headline the first-ever Schaeffer Eye Center CityFest on July 26.

An evolution of the Schaeffer Eye Center Crawfish Boil, the event was initially announced for the Uptown at the BJCC District, but was relocated to the heart of Birmingham.

“The evolution of the Crawfish Boil is resulting in Schaeffer Eye Center CityFest showcasing the best of Birmingham and who we are as a city. From our amazing corporate sponsors to the local music, food culture, art and family – this festival is about Birmingham and for Birmingham. While we are bringing in an amazing national act as our headliner, we are also very excited about all of the different elements going into this event that represent the best parts of Birmingham,” said Dr. Jack L. Schaeffer, CEO of Schaeffer Eye Center.

More than just a music festival, the free event aims to celebrate Birmingham in all of its glory. In addition to The Roots, local artists Taylor Hicks and Ruben Studdard will take the stage.

The event will also tap into Birmingham's growing food and brewing scene with food trucks and beers from local breweries represented at the event, as well.

Alabama's 13 is a proud sponsor of CityFest.
