Who We Are

AthFest Educates Presents AthFest 2015!

What is the AthFest Music & Arts Festival?

AthFest is a multi-day music and arts festival in downtown Athens, GA that showcases local, regional, and national musical talent. The festival includes three outdoor stages, an artist market, a two-night Club Crawl in more than 10 venues, and a three-day KidsFest celebration. And all proceeds directly benefit AthFest Educates.

Students in music classes benefit from AthFest Educates funding.Since 2009, AthFest Educates, an Athens-based nonprofit, has awarded nearly $200,000 in grants to schools, community organizations, and government agencies to support high-quality music and arts education programming for Athens-Clarke County youth.

In addition to our summer music festival, we also produce the AthHalf Half Marathon each October as our other major fundraiser. These events make it possible for us to award bi-annual grants throughout our community.
