Ready for a weekend of music? Like country? Blues? Gospel? Bluegrass? Alternative? Rock? Well, then c’mon to Aiken for a weekend of all things music. Not only will you discover the charm of this beautiful city that was recently named Southern Living’s Best Small Town, but you’ll also enjoy the sounds of awesome music everywhere you go.


We are connecting Aiken through arts and music!  The #connectAiken campaign will run throughout the Fall season with mini-events in all of our neighborhoods, advocacy group meet and greets, idea sessions, and fun networking opportunities.  It’s all about the collaboration. It’s all about that Aiken atmosphere. Mini-Event tickets help us fund the #connectAiken campaign and all of the music related events led by many different groups in Aiken that want to work together for our bright future.
