18th Annual BEF Waiter’s Race

August 2, 2013



WAITER’S RACE on Saturday @ 4PM

One of the most popular events of the Birmingham Ethnic Festival weekend is the Annual Waiter’s Race, which is held on Saturday afternoon of the Festival weekend. Teams from the neighborhood organizations and beyond compete in a relay race up and down Consaul Street.

Participants race down the street carrying a tray and four glasses of beer. They must try to win the race and not spill the beer. The winner is announced at the Festival’s Recognition Ceremonies Sunday by our own Waiter’s Race judge, the Honorable Amy Berling. Thank you Judge Berling for being with us since the first year!

Please come out and cheer for your favorite team! You will have a great time! This year’s race begins on the VFW end of Consaul Street.
