A-Town Get Down was created in honor of art student and musician, Alex “A-Town” Townsend, who passed away in 2010.
With the new location, attendees can now expect to see larger stages, more bands, more live art installations, vendors, food trucks and even a shipping container entertainment area under the Talmadge Bridge, with the help and support from the Savannah Department of Renewal Authority.
This year A-Town will once again collaborate with Loop It Up Savannah to connect students from Title I school districts to free access to interactive art and music projects. The two organizations work together during the school year as well, preparing backdrops and other art for display at the Festival.
The A-Town Get Down is a project of the Alex Townsend Memorial Foundation, a tax-exempt non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. The event raises funds for arts initiatives and arts education. For more information about the event please visit www.a-towngetdown.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
