Fever Birmingham created The Triple Set to bring a Bourbon Street style event to The Magic City Classic, while making it economically feasable for the community. Since it’s inaugural year of 2008, The Triple Set has made charitable contributions to The American Breast Cancer Foundation, The Magic City Harvest, and The Omicron Lambda Education Fund. Fox 6 news heralded The Triple Set as the reason fans of the classic are spending money downtown again. Each year this event grows in both size and popularity and has created an estimated economic impact of better than 350,000 to the City of Birmingham. Patrons of The Triple Set can expect to enjoy great music , food and drinks. The best way to describe The Triple Set is “flavor”.
