Former President Donald Trump is set to be the keynote speaker for the 2023 ALGOP Summer Dinner in Montgomery, according to an announcement from the Alabama Republican Party.

The Summer Dinner is part of the state party’s summer meeting and is scheduled for Aug. 4.

“The Alabama Republican Party is delighted to have President Trump be a part of our Summer Meeting, and join us as the keynote speaker for our annual Summer Dinner,” said ALGOP Chairman John Wahl. “President Trump is a political figure that has defined American politics over the last 8 years, and we are looking forward to hosting him in person August 4th. This is an excellent opportunity for the state of Alabama to see and interact with the GOP front-runner for president.”

The dinner will be hosted at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel at the Convention Center, starting with a reception at 6 p.m. followed by dinner at 7 p.m.

“The response to President Trump’s visit has been off the charts from people across the state. This is going to be a massive event, and we’re already expecting to sell out of tickets and tables. I encourage anyone interested in attending to buy your tickets early,” Wahl said.

Interested individuals can purchase their tickets early as it is expected to be a large event, with tickets and sponsorships already on sale and available on the Alabama Republican Party’s website.

The Alabama Republican Party has a history of inviting prominent conservative figures to the Yellowhammer State, including Trump’s 2021 Cullman rally, which set a record as the largest political event in Alabama’s history with over 50,000 attendees.
