What are Bham's biggest events?

Fellow foodies, a need your help. A food writer is coming to Birmingham to write about our restaurants, and has contacted us about restaurant recommendations. That I can handle.

But she also wants to know what big events/festivals we have that bring people to Birmingham. That way she can tie a food story to it: "So you're going to the Magic City for ___________; here's what to eat while you're there."

With the demise of City Stages, what's the biggest event for drawing out of towners? Mercedes Marathon? Sidewalk Film Festival? What? Help me out.

The Alabama Chapter of the Arthritis Foundation sponsors 'Mudbugs & Music' each year. This will be the 6th annual event on May 22nd at the Open Door Cafe. $20/ticket and all the crawfish you can eat! And for a great cause :)

SEC Baseball tournament?
Talladega? Which, of course, isn't in B'ham, but it packs our hotels.
