Music Festival, Pop-Up White Dinner and more are features of the 2017 Labor Day Jazz Weekend in the Augusta River Region.
AUGUSTA, GA – Visitors and residents in Augusta, Georgia, will have plenty to do during the 2017 Labor Day holiday weekend, as Garden City Jazz has partnered with several downtown businesses and event producers to present a full complement of activities between September 1-3, 2017. From trolley and craft brewery tours to music events, gallery crawls to fashion demos, a block party and a rooftop soiree, for all ages and preferences.
“It’s important that we attract (and provide activities for) family reunions and casual visitors to the downtown area. There are so many attractions and beautiful spaces here, and if we provide a great experience, then they’ll return… and bring friends. We’ve got to let people know that we’re here,” said director Karen Gordon.
Garden City Jazz presents several programs annually in the Greater Augusta Area, providing performance opportunities for area jazz musicians and music students, while promoting awareness of the historical and cultural significance of jazz music. A portion of proceeds will be donated to the James Brown Academy of Musik Pupils and the Wycliffe Gordon Scholarship at Augusta University.
