Help Us Help The Community


In the excitement of this Familial Community celebration, the Band of Brothers Augusta has created an innovative way for your organization to help significantly impact the attendee’s lives while also spreading comradery amongst the community. With the task of hosting such a huge humanitarian event, funding is dependent on the support we get from businesses, organizations, friends, and family. Our goal is to accommodate 10,000+ members of our community, and we are asking for your assistance in making this event a huge success.


The Juneteenth Augusta Festival would be nothing without the most extraordinary exhibition of businesses and products on display from around the Augusta/CSRA community. The event is open to any vendor who wishes to participate. Participating vendors are permitted a vending space to display and sell their products to those attending the annual Juneteenth Augusta Festival. In addition, vendors may also choose to add their company’s logo to the event banner. We have a limited amount of space for vendors, so first come, first serve!


Great music and performing arts set the tone and control the vibe of the Juneteenth Augusta Festival. We are always looking for performers to be a part of the experience rather than just a viewer. Performing artists in the Augusta/CSRA community will have the opportunity to perform for 10,000+ attendees offering inspiration, hope, love, and enjoyment to all. We are now accepting applications for singers, hip-hop artists, dancers, musicians, spoken word artists, and comedians. All performers will be selected by a committee and notified via email. This is a family-oriented event. Performance slots are limited.


It is an excellent feat of hard work and meticulous planning to ensure that the Juneteenth Augusta Festival runs smoothly. Volunteers are the people behind the scenes, ensuring that every attendee has a memorable and positive festival experience. Volunteers will be asked such things as helping set up before the festival and helping with the clean-up operations afterward, car parking, litter pick-up, or even crowd monitors. A lot goes into providing a truly exceptional event, and volunteers are the people who execute much of the hard work!
