AthFest is Coming!

We hope you’re ready for the talent that’s coming to town!

AthFest, the Athens Music and Arts Festival, is a 3 day festival hosted by AthFest, Inc.. There is the Artist Market with many artists, sculptors, and painters. There are 3 outdoor stages and more than a dozen venues hosting concerts. Plus, with around 200 bands on the schedule to perform, the line-up is dripping with talent and there is something for everyone to enjoy. There’s even KidsFest, a family and kids oriented version of the festival with activities and performances catered specifically to the little ones.

The entire festival will be held in downtown Athens from June 22-26, 2011, turning it into a melting pot of fans and artists alike. Kicking off the festival are the local filmmaker showcases at Cine’organized by Film: Athens and the Flagpole Magazine Athens Music Awards at the historic Morton Theater.

With a goal to educate the community of the importance of music and art, all proceeds from the festival support year-round educational efforts. For more information on how to experience this world of music and art, see AthFest’s website.
