Coming Up: WhistleStop Weekend 2021

WhistleStop Weekend 2021

Huntsville’s WhistleStop Weekend 2021 arrives at the station on August 13 and 14. This two-day event will bring live music, delicious food competitions, and a dose of philanthropy to John Hunt Park—just a mile away from Summer Place! Make a note to come hungry!

About WhistleStop Weekend

Is it really a summer event in Alabama without BBQ? We don’t think so—and WhistleStop Weekend 2021 agrees. This tasty BBQ and music event allows amateur smokers, professional grillmasters, and hungry folks to eat and compete. Who will win? And, more important—will you get a bite?


As you eat your BBQ, you can also rock out to live music. This year, WhistleStop Weekend has decided on their live theme: tributes. The lineup will feature groups playing the hits of the following famous artists:

  • Kansas;
  • Tom Petty;
  • Santana;
  • Lynyrd Skynrd; and
  • The Doobie Brothers.

Giving back

One of the best feelings in the world? Realizing we’ve done something good for others. Yes, you’ll have a blast at WhistleStop Weekend. But also, you’ll do something positive for the community along the way.

Proceeds for this event will also go towards the EarlyWorks Family of Museums. That means you’ll play a part in funding local education—and making it accessible for all. The museums you’ll aid are:

  • The Historic Huntsville Depot
  • The Alabama Constitution Hall Park & Museum; and
  • The EarlyWorks Children’s Museum.

So, the next time you go to one of their museums, take pride! You’ve made their continued operations possible.
