Calendar Pick: Chelsyfest

Terrapin will host the first annual Chelsyfest, an all-ages charity event to honor and celebrate the life of Athens resident Chelsy Giles, who died last summer at the age of 34. The event will raise money for the Epilepsy Foundation of Georgia to provide funding for children to attend Camp Carpe Diem, a week-long summer camp for children with special needs. The free festival will include live music both in the tap room and outdoors from Tre Powell (12 p.m.), Mary & the Hot Hotty-Hots (1 p.m.), Southern Conspiracy (4 p.m.), Henderson/Williams (5 p.m.) and All the Locals (5:30 p.m.). In addition to food trucks from Taqueria Dela Rosa, Catch 22, Cafe Racer and Kona Ice, there will be over a dozen vendors such as Franny’s Farmacy, Love.Craft Athens, Creations by Rise and Carolyn Schew. There will also be plenty of beer and other activities, too, like a dunk tank, face-painting and adoptable buddies from Athenspets.
