"Fright (Haunted House & Trails"
Was a little nervous about going as I do not like to be terrified, yet opted for tickets that allowed touching & potential kidnapping. The atmosphere at the furnace was as advertised - eerie. The passages were narrow & dark. As the group followed the path, it was very dimly lit with fog... Read More

"Interesting to the history of Birmingham"
There is no charge to see what is here and the furnaces are interesting. There is a VERY small museum with it and a little gift shop. They sell trinkets made by artists that work at the furnaces.

What You'll Get

According to folk etymologists, the term barbecue is derived from the French barbe coup, referring to the annual pig picking commemorating the infamous Bearded Rebellion. Celebrate saucy beards with today's Groupon: for $17, you get two adult admissions (a $34 value) to the Stokin' The Fire BBQ Festival on Saturday, August 20, benefiting Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark.

Gearing up for its seventh smoky installment, the Stokin' The Fire BBQ Festival is an annual barbecue competition set to a live soundtrack. Each year, barbecue from local teams competes for the tummies of the populous in the People's Choice competition, as well as for the taste buds of designated judges in various categories. Cast-iron trophies and prize money are bestowed upon the best burner in each category, and live music from The Rhythms, New Grass Troubadours, and Culture Dred accompanies the sound of sizzling meats. While adults enjoy the saucy wit of this summer's celebrity guest, Wendy Williams of The Wendy Williams Show, pintsize participants can enjoy the Kids’ Zone, which features games, crafts, and a palpable absence of pigs playing lawn darts.

Proceeds from the fest go toward the restoration and preservation of Sloss Furnaces National Historic Landmark, host to a museum commemorating Birmingham's industrial past, a metal-arts facility, and a shower room where barbecue champions can hose off.
