AthFest Music & Arts Festival is produced by local non-profit AthFest Educates. Since 2009, AthFest Educates has contributed more than $125,000 to music and arts education programs for Athens-Clarke County children.
In addition to our summer music festival, we also produce the AthHalf Half Marathon, our 2nd major fundraiser.
Although there are plenty of free events at AthFest, the BEST way to experience the festival is to grab your 2014 wristband and dive into our Club Crawl! Many club shows can be accessed by paying a cover charge, but all club crawl shows are FREE with wristband (subject to age & capacity restrictions). What’s more, there will be a number of wristband-only shows as well.
The best way to experience AthFest Music & Arts Festival is with an AthFest Wristband, but there are also PLENTY of free events for folks of all ages! Our outdoor Artist Market features amazing regional and local artists, and is free and open to the public. KidsFest is a mini-festival built to give kids an unforgettable experience, and features free music and activities. Finally, on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, we provide hours of free entertainment on two outdoor stages.
