About Birmingham
The Magic City.
That’s what Birmingham has been called for nearly 150 years, and it’s true.
There’s magic here.

Birmingham is Diverse.

Among the roughly 1.15 million residents of the greater Birmingham-Hoover metro area, about 29% are black, 4% are Hispanic, and 1% are Asian, according to the most recent U.S. Census Bureau data. Women make up nearly 52% of the population.

Birmingham is artsy.

Arts and culture in the city are supported by multiple museums, including those devoted to civil rights struggles of Birmingham’s past, along with numerous galleries, music and arts festivals, multiple performance theaters, live music venues, a ballet, a symphony orchestra, an opera, a School of Fine Arts, and a Jazz Hall of Fame.

Birmingham is progressive.

In 2018, Birmingham Mayor Randall Woodfin was selected to join the New DEAL (Developing Exceptional American Leaders), a 150-person national network of state and local leaders working to expand opportunity and enact pro-growth progressive solutions.

A section of the beautiful Ross Bridge subdivision in Birmingham’s suburbs is a federal “smart neighborhood.” These homes are 35% more energy efficient than comparable new homes, with a nearby solar panel field, integrated battery storage, electric vehicle charging stations in each garage, high-efficiency heating and cooling, and app control of things such as door locks and window shades.

Birmingham is Smart.

In April 2019, MarketWatch named Birmingham the No. 2 up-and-coming “tech Mecca” in the nation, thanks partly to the presence of tech and small business startup incubator The Innovation Depot and its Velocity Accelerator program.

Birmingham is proud.

The SHOUT LGBTQ Film Festival, created in 2006 by organizers of Birmingham’s nationally recognized annual Sidewalk Film Festival, features documentaries and short films by new and established artists and offers attendees the opportunity to view topics of interest to the LGBTQ community.

Birmingham is tasty.

We are a foodie town. 2018 Highlands Bar and Grill won the James Beard Foundation Award for the Most Outstanding Restaurant in America, thanks to its highly acclaimed French-inspired dishes and regional southern flavors. Several area chefs and venues have been nominated since for similar prestigious accolades.

Birmingham is competitive.

Birmingham is less expensive than the national average, with a cost-of-living index rating of 75.7 and a median home cost of less than $272,128.

Birmingham is fun.

Downtown Birmingham has enjoyed an epic revitalization in recent years, with the advent of numerous residential, retail, craft brewery, sporting, music, and outdoor entertainment developments.

In the past decade, two professional or minor league sports teams put down roots in the city center. Birmingham hosted the 2022 World Games at a $174 million multi-use stadium built for the heart of downtown. Protective Stadium hosts UAB football, the Birmingham Legion Football Club, and the USFL champions, the Birmingham Stallions. Minor league teams include the Birmingham Barons (MiLB), who play at Regions Field, and the Birmingham Squadron (NBA G League), who play at Legacy Arena.
