What to Do

Aiken City Limits

From country, gospel, alternative, rock and bluegrass, music is expected to fill every street corner of Aiken for Aiken City Limits, a collaborative effort that will allow residents and visitors to enjoy several musical events.

Aiken City Limits (ACL) is a city-wide music festival that started in 2017 when we noticed major music events throughout Aiken shared the same weekend. The organizers of those events were determined to collaborate and create one huge event together to promote all of the great things we have going on here in Aiken. There was a true love for Aiken that weekend as families and friends, young and old, rode the City Trolley around to attend the different music events. There was something for everyone to enjoy and we saw The City of Aiken connect through music.

The 2018 Aiken City Limits festival continues this collaborative approach to connect vibrant neighborhoods, diverse music genres, and music lovers throughout the city limits. This year will feature a stellar line up of events that include local and national touring musicians. We hope to see you there October 18th - 21st as we celebrate music, arts, and Aiken...TOGETHER!
