Auburn al events

Looking for fun and exciting events in Auburn this winter? Here are some of the city’s upcoming events taking place in January and February 2016.

4th Annual Auburn Polar Plunge

Taking place at Auburn Samford Pool, the Auburn Polar Plunge supports the Lee County Special Olympics for the fourth year in a row.

You can register to take the plunge here. The cool dip takes place on January 30th.

After registering for the event, your goal is to get as many people as possible to sponsor your pledge. Prizes will be awarded to the people who raise the most money. You can also win prizes for having the best costume.

Dress up, jump in, and join the Auburn Samford Pool for a fun day in support of a good cause.

Auburn vs. Alabama Basketball:

In one of the biggest games of the year, Auburn will take on Alabama on the basketball court.

The game starts at Auburn Arena at 8pm. Find out more information at

Only standing room tickets remain for the big game! Standing room tickets are priced at $30. When you purchase standing room tickets, you’ll stand around the rails near the 100 and 200 level concourses. Standing room is filled on a first come, first served basis. It’s not glamorous, but it gets you in the door.

Empty Bowls to Benefit the East Alabama Food Bank

Taking place on February 13, 2016 from 10am to 2pm, the Empty Bowls to Benefit the East Alabama Food Bank event requires a minimum donation of $10 per person to the Food Bank of East Alabama.

That donation entitles each ticket holder to their choice of a handmade bowl.

These handmade bowls are created by local potters. Then, you fill up your bowl with soup and bread donated by local restaurants.

The event takes place on Monday, January 11 at the Denson Drive Recreation Studio in Opelika.

Auburn Women’s Basketball

The Auburn Women’s Basketball team is taking on South Carolina on Thursday, January 21st at 6pm at Auburn Arena.

The next home date after that is on January 24th, when the team takes on Arkansas at 3pm.

Alabama Oyster Social

Put together by Dr. Bill Walton’s crew at the Auburn University Shellfish Laboratory, the Alabama Oyster Social puts some of the South’s most influential chefs in the same room as they create a variety of tasty oyster dishes.

This year’s event features refreshments provided by Back Forty Beer, Sazerac Bourbon, Grassroots Wholesale, International Wine, and Pinnacle Imports.

Come out to the Alabama Oyster Social and celebrate an important part of Alabama history while also supporting southern fishermen, farmers, foragers, butchers, brewers, distillers, and vintners!
