Schedule of Events
Augusta Road Business Association (ARBA) announces the Summer on Augusta Celebration, June 14 to 17, and is presented by Virginia Hayes of Coldwell Banker Caine. Virginia has been the presenting sponsor since the festivals creation in 2013. In 2017 Summer on Augusta moved from July to June due to July’s hotter temperatures. Supporting Sponsors are Priority One Security, Bannister Wyatt & Stalvey Law Firm, Southern First, Kenneth Rhodes & Associates, and Renita Owens, CPA.
Summer on Augusta is a celebration of one of Greenville’s most historic business districts. It is the only festival of its kind that ARBA and its members are able to produce without blocking off Augusta Road, which is a state highway. The Festivities and live music will take place all along Augusta Road in designated large lots and gathering spots.
This annual four day festival is created by members of Augusta Road Business Association to bring the Greenville community together for good food, great music and family friendly atmosphere. Summer on Augusta celebrates summer in the south with many themed events and attractions. Our returning events include the Block Party at Capers Place, Grillin’ and Chillin’ at Augusta Commons, the popular Tomato Pie Contest at The Pickwick Pharmacy & Soda Fountain, Shaggin’ on Augusta and ThirdAnnual Shag Contest, sponsored by Kenneth Rhodes & Associates, and SOA After Hours at The 05. New this year is Father’s Day Field Day and Cook out on the front lawn at BUMC Trinity Campus on Augusta Road.
