04_06_2016_Falls - 2.jpg

Gadsden, AL- Noccalula Falls is reopening Wednesday March 1st for the 2017 season. Looking ahead, the 2017 season should be the biggest year yet for Gadsden’s biggest and most visited park. We’ve made some tweaks to our seasonal hours and dates, along with streamlining our pricing structure. There are some big improvements in store for park facilities so pardon our progress this year as you visit Noccalula Falls Park and Campground.

The 2017 calendar for Noccalula Falls Parks and Campground is loaded with events. Each month you can find a unique and fun event at the park. The Spring season kicks off with the ‘Smoke on the Falls Barbecue Festival’ and ‘Smoke Your Buns 5K’ run in April. May will be our ‘Month of Mini-Golf’ and a focus on ‘Go Camping.’ June doesn’t slow down, in fact, it speeds up with both the ‘Wheels on the Hill’ car show and the ‘Barbarian Challenge’ obstacle course race. July brings the state-wide ‘4-H Black Creek Archery Tournament’ to Noccalula Falls. ‘The World’s Longest Yard Sale’ starts in Gadsden and heads north from Noccalula Falls in August. In September, we host the ‘Turtle Island Pow Wow’. The ‘G-Tractor Show’ and ‘Halloween Super Bash’ fill October. ‘Christmas at the Falls’ encompasses November and December. For a complete calendar of special events visit our website at

This year we’ve updated the pricing for entry to Noccalula Falls. Season passes are now $15 per adult or $10 per seniors/military/children (age 4-12) regardless of where you live. Each individual will receive their own personalized pass. One day passes for adults remain $6, child admission (age 4-12) will be $4, and 3 and younger remain free. New this year is a discount combo pass for park admission and mini golf, adults $8; seniors/military/children (age 4-12) $6.

While visiting the park, you may notice some construction projects. We’re renovating several buildings in the Pioneer Village so please be mindful of construction closures. The Petting Zoo and Barn are getting a facelift too, with new doors and stain on the siding. We’ve also been listening to your comments and suggestions. We’re adding more signage, wayfinding signs and maps. Visit one of the 4 map kiosks throughout the park to help you find your way around or grab a map from the ticket booth on your way in.
