June 20 -24, 2012, downtown Athens will be filled with music, art and more. Take just a short drive from Atlanta to see over 150 bands, participate in a club crawl, shop at the artists’ market, and view film screenings at the annual AthFest. Children will have fun with activities at Kids Fest which includes open mic, a photo booth, a parade, an art contest, and a songwriting workshop. Events will take place at various venues throughout downtown Athens although the main stage will be on Washington Street in front of the 40 Watt Club. Wristbands are $20 and will get you unlimited access to all participation venues; outdoor stage areas do not require wristbands.
Proceeds from the AthFest Music & Arts Festival benefit AthFest Educates!, which provides music education resources in Athens and area schools. Find out more about the 16th Annual AthFest at www.athfest.com.
