[ARCHIVED] Noccalula Falls Park Reopens for 2019 Season

Gadsden, AL-  Noccalula Falls is reopening Friday, March 1st for the 2019 season.  Looking ahead, the 2019 season will be an exciting year for Gadsden’s largest and most visited park. The park is continuing to make improvements for park facilities, so pardon our progress as you visit Noccalula Falls Park and Campground at 1500 Noccalula Road.

The 2019 calendar for Noccalula Falls Parks and Campground is loaded with events. Each month you can find a unique and fun event to suit your interests.  The Spring season kicks off with the ‘Smoke on the Falls Barbecue Festival’ and ‘Black Creek Archery Tournament’ in April.  In May ‘Art on the Rocks’ will be making a return and ‘The Noccalula Experience’ will open at the end of the month and continue into July. June doesn’t slow down; in fact, it speeds up with both the ‘Wheels on the Hill’ car show and the ‘Barbarian Challenge’ obstacle course race.  In July ‘The Noccalula Experience’ will wrap up and the park will celebrate ‘National Park and Rec Month’ with various activities. ‘The World’s Longest Yard Sale’ will take place in August and the park hosts the start of the sale, as it continues north. In September the park will celebrate 50 years of the Noccalula Statue. The ‘G-Tractor Show’, ‘Halloween Super Bash’ and ‘The Turtle Island Powwow’ fill the October calendar. As always, the spectacular ‘Christmas at the Falls’ will begin in November and conclude in January 2020.  For a complete calendar of special events visit our website at
