AthFest & AthFest Educates Tunes Up In The Community

Posted on June 20, 2018

When you live at The Georgia Club you’re up close and personal with The Classic City and all the culture it has to offer. Athens is known internationally for its live music scene and ability to cultivate unique musical acts of all kinds. Although there are opportunities all year round to see local acts and support the growing artistic community, it all culminates at AthFest.

AthFest

AthFest is a free indoor/outdoor music festival, held in historic downtown Athens, GA, that started in 1997. Every June, the city comes together in celebration—and in support—of local musicians and the AthFest Educates non-profit (more on that later)! The festival features hundreds of live acts, films, a KidFest arena, artists’ markets, food trucks, and more. This year’s event is this weekend! So get out your sunscreen and head downtown to enjoy! For more information and to view the schedule, visit the AthFest website.

AthFest Educates

AthFest Educates is a local non-profit whose funding is supported by the AthFest Music Festival and the AthHalf Half Marathon. As described on their website:

“AthFest educates is a non-profit organization committed to sustaining and advancing music and arts education for youth in Athens-Clarke County. To fulfill our mission, we produce two annual fundraisers, The AthFest Music & Arts Festival and The AthHalf Half Marathon. The proceeds from these events fund the organization’s bi-annual grant-making efforts.”

AthFest Educates has issued over $290,000 in grants to the Athens-Clarke County community, including to all of the local elementary and middle schools in the district. Their main funding initiatives are music and art non-consumable equipment, music and arts programs and experiences, and art-based and music-based professional development for educators and/or youth development specialists. More simply put, AthFest Educates supports the celebration, expression, and education of the arts and music, and get to fund projects that contribute to the community!

AthFest Educates is highly regarded in the local community and beyond. There are a lot of opportunities to support the organization starts with attending AthFest and participating in the AthHalf!
