Publix Presents Family Camp-Out Night

Your family is invited to a campout on our front lawn to learn, play and make memories to last a lifetime!

One night a year, we convert a special section of Railroad Park into an interactive campground for families. A host of experts will give lessons on everything from astronomy to creek ecology to raw materials in nature‐and an animal show 'n tell from the Birmingham Zoo will delight campers of all ages. (Check the full schedule below for details on the lessons and the pros who'll be giving them.)

To create a true family campground atmosphere, this particular event is open only to families with children*.

Bring your tent and your family, and we'll take care of the rest. Publix is catering healthy snacks, delectable dinner options, and a nourishing breakfast, not to mention a tasty build‐your‐own trail mix bar.

It's a rare opportunity to camp in a way that you haven't before‐and to make memories and gain camping insight that you'll take with you through the years.

Join us this year on Satuday, July 28-Sunday, July 29!.

(includes delicious, hearty and healthy dinner options, breakfast, and snacks and treats galore for each attendee, catered by Publix Super Markets, Inc.)
