Rise of the Alabama Phoenix Festival!


It's so hard to believe that we just wrapped up our third convention in Birmingham. The encouragement of those around us is what makes all of this possible, and we would like to wish a few warm and hearty thanks to specific groups of people who came out to support the 2014 Alabama Phoenix Festival. We’d first like to recognize our hard-working Crew Members, the incredible group of staff and volunteers that worked tirelessly throughout the weekend and the months leading up to it. Know that your help, hard work, and dedication is appreciated beyond measure; we simply could not do this without you all! Secondly, we’d like to thank our wonderful sponsors: The Alabama Ghostbusters, Gobbledygeek, Tandy Leather, Yelp, Birmingham Mountain Radio, as well as our activity sponsors, Play On Con, GameStop, and the Magic City Lego Users Group. We’d also like to give a HUGE thanks to all of the numerous guests, vendors, and exhibitors; know that you are all very appreciated. Last, but certainly not least, we want to thank YOU, the patrons, that came out to enjoy the festival; your support of APF through ticket sales helps to ensure the continuation of this event. Without you, this would not be possible. Thank you all again!
