The Augusta Convention & Visitors Bureau’s fresh new space is meant to welcome both visitors and locals alike. Augusta & Co. features locally produced merchandise, goods, and Augusta’s own local experts. Just as much an interactive hub, this new communal space provides visitors with the opportunity to engage with local Augustans, as well. This includes featured tastings with local brewers, introductions to local artists, book signings by Augusta authors, all of whom help tell Augusta’s stories. The official grand opening and ribbon cut will be held on May 10 at 5 p.m.
“The name Augusta & Co. captures the idea of bringing people together,” Jennifer Bowen, our Vice President of Destination Development & Community Engagement said. “By featuring the products of local craftsmen, artists, and makers of authentic Augusta food and beverages, we are bringing people together to tell Augusta’s story. Each segment of Augusta & Co will stay fresh throughout the year with rotating installations in the gallery, new local products, and in-person discussions of activities to do in Augusta.”
Augusta & Co. intends to shake up the city and add a fresh, new vibe to Augusta’s growing downtown. It will also remain a first-stop destination for visitors and locals to enjoy product demonstrations, special events and seasonal merchandise items. Augusta & Co. is set to operate seven days a week with extended evening hours on Thursday through Saturday for ease of access.
