The last Saturday of July is Macon, Georgia's ultimate summer music festival where, rain or shine, 80+ bands take on 20+ stages and put on one unforgettable shows after another in a jam-packed, country, rock, blues, electronic and soul-infused night.
But the Bragg Jam Festival isn't just for live-music
lovin' night owls. During the day, Bragg Jam's Arts @ the Park hosts a free daytime event where families are invited to create, perform and play in the heart of the city. The event features art, food and beverage vendors, live music and community performances and nature-oriented activities.
As the sun goes down, Bragg Jam's signature Concert Crawl is already geared up, featuring 56 live music performances at a variety of Macon hotspots, with free trolley service throughout the night. In addition to bars and theatres, there are all-ages performance venues that are smoke-free and family friendly. Admission to the Concert Crawl gets you an armband that gives you access to all participating venues!
Bragg Jam donated a portion of this year's net proceeds to the Ocmulgee Heritage Trail, the Cox Capitol Theatre and the Georgia Music Hall of Fame's M.I.K.E. (Music in Kids Education) program. Inspired by late musicians and brothers Brax & Tate Bragg and operated as a 501(c)3 under a volunteer board of directors, as of 2010 the festival has contributed over $150,000 of its net proceeds to charitable organizations.
