eats & drinks

Arts in the Heart of Augusta is renown for its authentic international food booths that give attendees an opportunity to eat their way around the world. It’s a true tummy challenge but well worth the tasty effort.


There are also lots of beverage options, from unique cultural drinks offered by our food booths to popular beers, wines and mixed drinks at the Beer Garden.

stage schedules

Five Stages of non-stop entertainment include the Global Stage on the Augusta Common with cultural music and dance along with popular music into the evening.  A Jazz Stage offers Jazz, Blues, and Roots performances, while the NEW Soul Suite Stage will be indoors and feature poetry, storytelling, acoustic music, Soul, spoken word, and improv. The popular Family Stage moves to the 600 Block with performances that appeal to children and families. And of course our dynamic Community Stage is back featuring Augusta’s local talent.
