Weekend Pregame: Get an early start on celebrating the 2021 Magic City Classic, Oct 22-24

Asia's Tech News Daily

The countdown to kickoff is on for the largest Historically Black College and University football game in the country. Next week, Alabama A&M University and Alabama State will face off in the 80th annual Magic City Classic. After an abbreviated 79th classic game in April, played five months later than its original date due to the COVID restrictions of 2020, the historic rivalry between the Bulldogs and the Hornets returns to Birmingham’s Legion Field on Saturday, Oct. 30.

Weekend Pregame: Get an early start on celebrating the 2021 Magic City Classic, Oct 22-24
© Roy S. Johnson | rjohnson/al.com The 79th Magic City Classic, delayed from last fall, did not feature much of the familiar and celebrated facets, like tailgating and marching bands. Yet on a beautiful spring evening, the football game and camaraderie sufficed.

This month’s return of the Magic City Classic will also mark the return of the celebrated Classic festivities— more than a week of pomp, circumstance, and distinction as students, alumni, and fans of both universities converge in Birmingham for days of fellowship, parties, and tailgates leading up to the historic football game and Battle of the Bands.

Starting this Friday, entertainment groups, cigar clubs, and design collectives will get an early start on ringing in the Classic with day parties, concerts, and fashion shows in the metro area, many sponsored by spirits brands including Jack Daniels and Birmingham’s own Redmont Vodka. Because what’s a pre-game celebration without spirits?

Looking to get your Magic City Classic celebrations started early? Here’s what to do this weekend.
