Fest of Ale Arts & Music Festival

With the recent opening of a dedicated, onsite concert venue, Athens’ longest-running brewery has emerged as a bona fide music destination. Terrapin shows off its new space with an all-day festival—pardon me, Fest of Ale—featuring over a dozen local folk, rock, funk and jam bands. Performers include bluegrass faves Packway Handle Band; groove merchants Misnomer; psych junkies Dream Culture; folk-rock standout The Broken String Band; singer-songwriters Sarah Zúñiga, Tyler Key and Michael Coast; and many others. Ten percent of proceeds from the event will be donated to Nuçi’s Space. Regular Terp-heads, take note: Fest of Ale tickets will be required to access the brewery’s tap room Saturday.
