Welcome 9th Annual Augusta Pride Festival

We ARE the People

June 21-24, 2018

Augusta welcomes you with open arms! We all celebrate Pride in different ways and Augusta's River Region offers something for everyone during the festival. Augusta’s River Region has all the flavors of the South with a growing culture of artists, foodies, athletes, adventurers, historians and families – and it’s all the things a Southerner should be. Laid-back. Welcoming. And a little bit quirky. Let's celebrate love and equality together!

In addition, Helms College culinary students receive experiential learning opportunities through service at Edgar's Grille. Named for Edgar Helms, founder of Goodwill Industries, Edgar’s offers discriminating diners here in Augusta a true “win-win” situation. You get to enjoy creative cuisine and delectable desserts from some of the South’s leading chefs, and also enjoy that warm feeling inside that comes from helping others.

Music & Nightlife


In Augusta, music and nightlife go hand in hand. Sure, you can find one without the other. But would you really want that? You can go out on almost any given night and hear live music at one of the many eclectic bars downtown. And while you're here, don't miss Beats on Broad, Augusta's largest outdoor dance party.
