About AthFest Educates

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.

Who Benefits from AthFest Educates:

Through grants to local teachers, youth development specialists, and community organizations, AthFest Educates advances music and arts education for young people across Athens-Clarke County. Without the support of AthFest Educates, many of the creative music and arts programs and resources our young learners currently access simply would not exist.
