Athens Harvest Festival

The Athens Harvest Festival is officially back for its third year at Lake Snowden, for an exciting Labor Day Weekend filled with world-class Bluegrass music; a focus on Appalachian life, agriculture, and community food and farming initiatives. The weekend will also be capped off with a spectacular Fireworks Display! This Athens-rooted celebration is quickly becoming an annual holiday destination spot for the Tri-State area and beyond!

National, regional and local Bluegrass music, including Billy Strings, Blue Moon Soup, The Restless Leg String Band, String Therapy, The Bluegrass Sweethearts, The Red Brush Band and more!
