Mission Statement

AthFest Educates advances high-quality music and arts education for local youth and

the Athens community through direct support of school and community-based

programs and events, including an annual music and arts festival.

Here’s what you have to look forward to this weekend…




The open-air Artist Market is an integral part of the AthFest Music & Arts Festival. Booths feature fine arts and crafts for sale. Exhibited work may include visual arts (painting, drawing, mixed media, photography, and digital art), fabric, clothing and accessories, jewelry, and handcrafted items (sculpture, ceramics, glass, woodworking and furniture). See examples of past Artist Market participants on our Pinterest board!
