West Fest

The first annual West Fest was held on June 2nd, 2018 at Georgia Square Mall. Featuring local Athens West businesses, Athens-area non-profits, live performances, food trucks, "Junk Fest" with craft and handmade items, and a kids zone boasting face painting, gymnastics activities, bouncy houses, touch-a-truck, and more! 

After the success of the first event, the Athens West Business Group has already begun the planning process for the 2nd annual West Fest event to be held in 2019.

Expectations for next year’s festivities are set high after the 2018 West Fest melded businesses, nonprofits and music with summer fun.
