Every Thursday night, at 7pm EST, tune into the FEST Facebook account and watch a curated show featuring at least five FEST 19 performers from their home to yours. Make sure to follow us on social media so you know who is performing each week.

GRACE MARKETPLACE / WE ARE NEUTRAL

We are happy this year to once again donate $1 from every FEST 19 pass sold to GRACE MARKETPLACE to provide safe shelter, effective services, and permanent housing solutions to end homelessness in Gainesville. Last year, GRACE used the money raised from FEST + the awesome raffle by Anthem Tattoo to get almost THIRTY PEOPLE off the streets and into a home!

We are also partnering once again with WE ARE NEUTRAL to offset the carbon footprint of our venues at FEST 19. You too can calculate your carbon footprint from your travel to FEST 19 and make a simple donation to help offset when you check out.

You can learn more about these organizations on the SOCIAL IMPACT page.
