200 Alabama Bicentennial

Celebrating Alabama’s 200th birthday2017 2018 2019

On Saturday, April 7th, the Fredonia Community Club will host the 68th annual Fredonia Barbecue at the Fredonia Community House in Five Points, Alabama.

While the rural town of Fredonia is only 1 mile in diameter and consists of only 100 property owners, the barbecue feeds more than 1,000 visitors in the historic 1919 school building each year to raise funds for community needs and the local volunteer fire department.

This year, the town celebrates the ALABAMA 200 theme of Honoring Our People by offering true southern hospitality to its guests while remembering its past. During the event, hundreds of photographs line the school’s walls to honor previous guests, volunteers, and lost community members. The town also recognizes its past generations with its Brunswick Stew recipe, which has been handed down through the years and contains secret ingredients known only to a few seasoned cooks.

The event is officially endorsed by the Alabama Bicentennial Commission. For more information, visit the Fredonia Heritage Association’s Facebook page.
