A Weekend in Tuscumbia: What to expect at this year's Helen Keller Fest



Helen Keller Fest, one of the largest events in The Shoals, is an annual celebration hosted around the birth date of Helen Keller. Created to commemorate her life and remarkable achievements in the face of adversity, this event has grown to be a local favorite because of the opportunity it presents to not only celebrate our incredible heritage, but also support local businesses.


Each year, the community gathers at the weekend-long festival in Helen Keller's hometown of Tuscumbia for live entertainment, special events, and to browse through a marketplace full of products from local artists and vendors.
