Upcoming Events

The festival and events calendar for Guntersville is full and varied. January starts things off with an Eagle Awareness program at Lake Guntersville State Park, a perfect spot to witness the comeback of this proud American symbol. St. Patrick’s Day sports the Wild Irish Run, a highly-regarded regional 10K event.

Each week during the summer the Mountain Valley Arts Council stages a free concert by the lake, and the city lights up the 4th of July with a stunning over-the-lake fireworks display. And in the year’s grand finale, the city celebrates with a Boat Parade of Lights for a unique holiday experience.
