About Us

WELCOME!

Thanks for stopping by Happenin's in the 'Ham! This is our way of sharing the great events and activities you can enjoy around Birmingham!


Our story is a simple one. Our lives have been intertwined with the city since the day we met. We didn’t have a lot of money when we started dating, so we sought out free and low costs events to attend. As our love for one another grew, so did our love for Birmingham. We got engaged in Railroad Park, got married in a small green space in Homewood, and had our wedding reception on the rooftop of the Redmont Hotel back in 2012.


After sharing our weekend adventures with family, friends, and co-workers we quickly realized that people had no idea how many great events and activities happen downtown on a regular basis! Out of our deep desire to share and promote our city, Happenin’s in the ‘Ham was born.


What started out as a small website quickly grew into a dedicated following across multiple social media platforms. We have met and continue to work with so many amazing people who share our vision for Birmingham’s future. It is our privilege to share our adventures across this great city in hopes that others will join us by becoming engaged in the Birmingham community.


This is not just our story, it’s also the story of the people we interact with while promoting Birmingham, its local businesses, and passionate residents who share our faith in the city. Our hope is that you will follow along and become part of the story of Happenin’s in the ‘Ham.


Sincerely, your Happenin' Hosts,
Amber & Russell
