Admission is free.
A new kind of music festival that promotes LIFE and HOPE this September with sips and sounds. The sips, handcrafted mocktails provided by Georgia Routes, are alcohol-free. The sounds include an impressive lineup; Aiken native, and Music Row’s Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year nominee, James McNair, The Kenny George Band, Chris Ndeti and the Mama Says Band, and Jack McCarthy Music.
This event is presented by Overflow Foundation, a non-profit organization that was started in memory of Phillip Lee Jr, who died by suicide on September 6, 2018. Phillip Jr. was a professional singer/songwriter and was very well known in the Aiken/Augusta area.
Overflow’s Founder, Terry Lee, shares that “It is with great pain and purpose that I am planning this event. The event is in memory of my son Phillip Lee Jr., but is also in recognition of September being National Suicide Prevention Month. BUT, this event is about LIFE and HOPE, not suicide!”
The event is slated to take place at Virginia Acres Park (the park surrounding the Odell Weeks Activities Center), in Aiken on Saturday, September 25 from 5-9 PM. Parking is available at 1613 Two Notch Rd SE. Guests should bring a lawn chair or picnic blanket to enjoy the concert. Admission is free.
Jason Waters, with Georgia Routes will offer Mocktails from a vintage, camper themed food truck, “We will be offering up fruit and herbal mocktails (and providing recipes) carrying the message of hope. That life is doable, and enjoyable too, without alcohol.”
Other vendors include Meadows of Grovetown, a fabulous frozen custard and espresso vendor, Palmetto Bowls, a new açaí vendor in the CSRA, Pot Smokers BBQ, Deez Treats Italian ice, and Coach T’s who serves a variety of burger and hot dog type food choices.
