arts in the heart of augusta festival 2022

Arts in the Heart of Augusta Festival was held on September 16, 17, and 18th in the heart of downtown Augusta, Georgia. This year the festival was bigger and better than ever with an additional city block added and over 100,000 attendees!  We featured 130 juried Arts in the Heart Artists,  five Stages of non-stop entertainment including cultural music, dance, popular music, jazz, poetry, storytelling, acoustic music, Soul, spoken word, and more.

Eighteen international food booths on the Augusta Common provided festival patrons with authentic cuisine from around the world. The popular Family Area and Young Artists Markets provided families with an almost endless number of things to see and do!  Artzilla artists painted live all weekend, along with local artists by the Jazz stage and in the Global Village. All around it was a festival to be remembered! Mark your calendars for September 15 – 17, 2023!
