BRWA River Fest

The Broad River Outpost hosts a two-day fall concert to benefit the Broad River Watershed Association. The action takes place at Camp Kiwanis in Danielsville, and music kicks off around sunset both nights. Bands include Elf Power, Wild of Night, Crunchy, Scott Spillane EXP, the Shoal Creek Stranglers, the Athens Cowboy Choir and others. A wristband for the weekend is $10, but you can pony up a little more if you wanna set up camp, or stay in one of the camp’s cabins. In addition to the music, Saturday’s much-anticipated UGA-Alabama football game will be screened, and organizers promise other fun outdoors-y stuff, like a hay ride, an egg-in-spoon tube race, a plant-identification showdown and more.

5 p.m. $10.
