    20th Annual WhistleStop Weekend Cancelled 

    It is with great sadness that the EarlyWorks Family of Museums Board of Directors and staff announce that WhistleStop Weekend 2020 which was scheduled for May 1-2 has been cancelled. We held out as long as we could knowing how much everyone loves this festival, but due to global health concerns associated with the COVID-19 pandemic and in following guidelines about public gathering released by the CDC and ADPH the WhistleStop team felt there was no other safe and responsible option with the current state of the pandemic. Keeping our community safe and healthy is our number one priority. The volunteer team that organizes WhistleStop has worked hard to plan the 20th year of this great festival, sadly it will not take place this year



    Two days of music, food, and fun on the grounds of the Historic Huntsville Depot! Live entertainment, family fun zone, and barbecue judging are highlights of this annual event. First weekend in May. May 1-2, 2020 Admission
